This is a very popular cheese made from pasteurised cow's milk. It was the first cheese from Beemster, which was introduced in the United States and nowadays it has become one of the best selling cheeses. This extra aged Gouda is manufactured in the area of Northern Holland, which is well known for its rich milk and fertile grazing land.
Matured for at least 18 months, it offers a wonderfully complex taste. Upon maturing, the cheese develops a beautiful, soft caramel colour and a strong aroma with a sweet finish. Beemster Classic can be used in sandwiches and goes perfectly with a wide variety of wines.
