As you may have guessed, this aged Gouda is named after the famous Dutch painter Rembrandt van Rijn. This award winning Dutch gourmet cheese is aged for one year in a classic natural way. The cheese is hard, but you will still be able to slice it and the texture will allow you to shred or chunk or melt the cheese; it has a creamy rich flavor, slightly sharp, so ideal on a sandwich, on burger, in a cheese sauce. Pair Rembrandt with a Cabernet Sauvignon or a Shiraz, or with a Trappister Beer or IPA. read more...

At the International Nantwich Cheese Show (UK) in ... read more

This Dutch gourmet cheese is aged until it reaches the flavor profile that was set for the maturo; it is not aged for a pre-set amount of time, like the majority of cheese. This cheese is respected and allowed to take its own sweet time, like waiting on a beautiful woman to arrive,... read more
  • Old Amsterdam is an aged Gouda cheese that is aged until the Dutch cheese makers are ready to release it, when they know the cheese had the perfect  flavor and texture.
