The unique cheese with the eight edges. A new cheese specialty of our Rehmer alpine dairy – thanks to manual care and hand-made, traditional production. Artisanal small scale manufacturing process.
Note: The name » Merboth « comes from the Bregenzerwald legend from the alps village Egg: Merboth, Diedo and Ilga
The NEW created Rehmer semi-hard cheese EDITION »REHMOCTA … does not roll!« from MASTER CHEESEMAKER Herman Berchtold is out of the ordinary.
The Rehmocta cheese is a special type of highest hand made quality semi-hard cheese from our Rehmen dairy in Au. The cheese rind of the cheese is treated specially (without added salt) before the cheese affination.
With the REHMOCTAS, dairyman Hermann has taken a very special way in designing a new artisanal cheese in the Rehmer Sennhus. The 8-edged cheese wheels are recognizable and prevent – because of the shaping – the automated cheese care with robots. Thus, the copying of the mold by industrial means is not possible.
In addition, the cheeses are molded in natural wood shapes – instead of cheese molds made of plastic or common stainless steel.
With a REHMOCTA » Merboth « you hold a unique cheese specialty in your hands. The semi-hard cheese gets its special aroma through 100% manual care in the natural cellar and the enlarged surface structure of the octagonal prism shape of the cheese wheel. The cheese rind of the cheese is maintained or massaged with a secret brine and pure, dextrorotatory spring water.
Important note: As a purity requirement of our premium quality cheeses, we never add additives such as spices, herbs etc. into the cheese dough. Only the cheese rind is treated.
