Holtseer Tilsiter Cheese (per 1lb.)

Our original since 1942. The special climate of the Baltic Sea gives it its unique taste. Ideal on hearty black bread.



  • Sliced cheese
  • Min. 6 weeks naturally matured
  • Full fat level

If only you could smell it! The wonderful scent of our Holtseer Tilsiter. It is our heart, our original. And that since 1942. After it matures for at least 6 weeks, you will receive the sliced cheese as bread. Due to its slightly tart to spicy taste, it harmonizes perfectly with strong black bread. 

Fits perfectly with
  • Black bread
  • Cheese fondue

Named after a town in East Prussia, Tilsit was invented by homesick Dutch immigrants trying to recreate Gouda. Due to various factors, they were unable to recreate their beloved cheese. What they did create was a brand new cheese they named Tilsit. Tilsit is made from partially skimmed pasteurized cow's milk and is semi-firm with a springy texture, dotted with irregularly spaced tiny holes. It was traditionally made in large wheels, but is now made in loaf form, making it easier to slice (the way it is generally eaten). The rind is washed and brushed regularly for the first two months of aging to form an outer crust that keeps its supple, smooth interior from drying out. Tilsit has a mildly pungent aroma and a tangy taste that is delicate and fruity with spicy undertones. This German favorite is excellent on sandwiches, cold or grilled. It is also great on chicken or burgers, and also can be enjoyed melted over potatoes.

    German Tilsiter cheese

    Fine cheese, but more like a Swiss Appenzeller than a Swiss, Gerber Tilsiter, which is what I had been hoping for.

    Smells strong - tastes great. A little touch of mustard on it makes it even better.
