Old Amsterdam is an aged Gouda cheese made from pasteurised cows milk. Gouda cheese is named after the town of Gouda, situated in between Rotterdam and Utrecht located in the South Holland province of the Netherlands. Old Amsterdam is a smooth, firm, waxy textured, slightly granular Gouda with a deep colour that is matured for around 18 months. The resulting cheese has a deep, lingering, mellow flavour with hints of caramel and marmite on the palate.
This is a fabulous cheese for any cheeseboard but equally good when cooked and goes extremely well with pistachio and figs. It has won European Gold Medals.
Please note all cheeses are hand cut, therefore the weights listed are approximate. We work very hard to cut them as accurately as we can!
