Abertam is a traditional sheep's milk cheese made in the famous Czech spa town of Karlovy Vary. The pale yellow cheese is shaped into irregular spheres before being ripened for about 2 months. Featuring a thin yellow to orange natural rind, it is mostly used for melting despite having a hard texture.

Abertam is an artisanal cheese who’s deep and strong flavours are influenced by the natural pastures of mountainous part of Bohemia. The cheese makes a great addition to cheese tastings and plates. Its characteristic extra strong flavour often pairs well with beer, dark lager, pilsner and sweet wines. Add it to a variety of dishes such as fondue, bread or crackers, dipping for that tangy kick and acidic bite. The cheese also goes marvellously with apples and grilled cheese sandwiches.
