Gruyere is still made in village dairies using knowledge that has been handed down through generations, and of course, thorough training that cheesemakers now undergo. With a slightly sweet yet meaty flavor, Gruyere is smooth and creamy when young, and develops a more earthy and complex flavor as it ages. In this form the cheese is easier for foodservice to slice and also convenient for small shops to handle.
