Re-introducing an old favorite…Beemster Classic. From the makers of our best-selling Beemster XO, this cow’s milk cheese is aged for only 18 months, producing a milder, smoother type of gouda.
In 1612, Dutch engineers of North Holland used a system of dykes and windmills, drained the marshes and bogs of the Beemster polder and converted the land into pastures. This polder is now a UNESCO World Heritage site that is nourished by sea water; the clay soil left behind from the tides is nutrient rich and has a distinctive slate blue tint. This terroir yields grasses that are thicker and longer than others, giving the milk produced here an especially sweet and creamy quality.
If this hasn’t already piqued your curiosity, we currently have this wonderful cheese at a special price . . . regularly priced at $16.99/lb, we are offering it for $14.99/lb for a limited time, so come try it before it’s gone!
