L'Amuse Gouda



Perfect gifts

Artfully Chosen

We work closely with cheese selector and importer Essex St. Cheese to source this incredibly aged gouda. The cheese is produced in northern Holland by the Cono Co-op and then is aged by affineur and cheesemonger Betty Koster. Betty ages these wheels at a slightly warmer temperature than typically aged gouda. The result is a deep flavor, plenty of tyrosine crunch (proteins) and a texture that is not too dry and brittle. It is creamy with distinctive hazelnut flavor and deep caramel notes.
