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.

There are three different varieties of Reypenaer segregated according to its age. Classic Reypenaer cheese is matured for one year and comes with a soft, creamy flavour that stays on the palate throughout the tasting.
