Our Featured Gourmet Gouda Cheese
Reypenaer cheese, one of the great Dutch cheeses, is carefully matured for about 1 year. This Dutch gourmet cheese is aged less than the Reypenaer VSOP, although it is already very old as cheeses go. It does not have the sharper tangy taste of the Reypenaer VSOP, instead it has a soft and creamy flavor that lingers on the palate. Simply delicious!
At the International Nantwich Cheese Show (UK) in 2009, in competition with a large number of international entries, judged by an independent jury, Reypenaer Cheese has won a prize again. The Reypenaer cheese was presented to be the Supreme Champion of the International Cheese Show 2009. After previous victories in 2007 and 2005 the Reypenaer cheese became the 'Best Dutch Cheese' again.
This cheese is ideal for serving on a cheese board for that special occasion, at the table, and for cutting off small slices and decadently enjoying with your favorite beverage. Reypenaer sliced is a perfect accompaniment in building that very special gourmet sandwich. Indeed Reypenaer more than fulfills its read more...

Gouda and Gouda-style cheeses are recognizable in their shape, most of them are wheels, big wheels around 25 pounds in weight. As Gouda refers to a particular style cheese, there are of course many varieties; length of ageing, method of aging, ingredients used, rind color and herbs, or spices added.
