A staple of all gourmet cheese boards, and an ideal cheese for culinary & everyday occassions, Gruyère AOP takes on extremely noble notes when aged to full maturity. Le Gruyère AOP 11 months from the Cavern range is a deliciously full-bodied cheese distinguished from its milder version by a distinctive crystalline crunch, a hard crumbly and grainy texture.
Revered for its rich flavors of butterscotch, whiskey, and pecan, Beemster X-O has a deep ocher interior and a firm, crumbly texture. True to the characteristics of Beemster’s unique milk, this cheese retains a creamy mouthfeel, even though it`s aged for more than 2 years. It’s also studded with crunchy, mouthwatering crystals that surprise the palate. Whether for a special occasion or your own special treat, Beemster X-O is a coveted favorite.
With its distinctive red wax rind, Gouda is the most famous Dutch cheese. It is made from pasteurized cow milk cheese and has a characteristic light orange texture dotted with tiny holes. Red wax Gouda has a mild, nutty flavor that is quite similar to edam but with a slightly creamier paste.
Parrano is made as a modified Gouda recipe that has been changed to incorporate elements of Italian style cheesemaking. The resulting flavor and texture forms a mid ground between gouda and parmesan. Parrano has enough flavor to be appealing to a connoisseur, yet simple enough for a beginner; a real crowd pleaser.
Now we`re talkin`! Beemster Classic (aged 18-months) is considered the classic Dutch cheese throughout Holland. Its complex flavors develop slowly as it matures for a year and a half in our 100+ year-old traditional warehouse. A firm texture with some crystallization, a deep ochre interior, notes of toasted walnuts, and a brown-butter finish equal perfection!
Renowned Danish creamery St. Clemens may be best known for their blue cheese. Yearning to emulate the French favorite Roquefort, the cheese holds a rich history on the island of Bornholm, east of Denmark, famous for its rich green pastures and picturesque shorelines. Made with pure cow’s milk, this creamy blue is streaked with blueish-green veins within a pale ivory-colored paste. The slightly moist, edible rind has a certain pungency which plays off the earthy tones of the cheese, which is now packaged in a three-pack of this famous cheese. St. Clemens is the only producer in the world to be named two-time World Cheese Champion: in 1980 and 1998.
