The Award-Winning Cheese
Old Amsterdam is a premium aged Gouda cheese with a smooth texture and rich, robust taste. Old Amsterdam does not have the dry, salty properties of an ordinary Gouda, but has a delicious, rich flavor and is easily sliceable. As a result of years of dedication and craftsmanship, the Westland family successfully formulated a culture and unique ripening process that imbues Old Amsterdam with its distinctive characteristics – a beautiful balance of savory-sweet flavor sparked with fine ripening crystals.
This makes Old Amsterdam a perfect addition to any cheese board, along with fruit, crackers, rustic bread – and, of course, wine. Old Amsterdam is also a versatile recipe ingredient – with a taste that enhances everything from appetizers to entrees to desserts. Master cheese makers in Holland constantly oversee the production, monitoring taste and quality. Old Amsterdam is released for sale only when it reaches the perfect taste and quality.
