Flavour Profile: The Reypenaer Gouda has a heavy texture with delightful calcium lactate crystals throughout to give it a thoroughly satisfying crunch, perfectly complimenting the strong, caramel flavours and slight piquancy. A sweet finish rounds it off nicely.
Drinks Pairing: We love this with a good ale! But it also pairs lovely with a hearty stout, single malt whisky or barrel-aged gin…
About the Maker: The Dutch make great cheese and Reypenaer is an extremely good example of artisanal workmanship. It is a variety of Gouda that is taken through a series of maturation stages in an entirely natural way. In fact, the ageing of Reypenaer is the highlight of the cheese which takes place in a 100-year-old warehouse along the Oude Rijn river in controlled conditions.
How to Enjoy: This cheese is so delicious that it really can just be enjoyed on its own with a nice drink.
