This Gouda cheese has been matured for 8-months and even though it’s old, it still has a creamy texture with salt crystals. The second cheese is the Gouda Garden Herbs. This Gouda cheese has been selected by Old Amsterdam and has been matured for 4-months. This Gouda cheese has a soft, creamy texture with a rich flavour. Garden herbs such as peppers, chives and garlic have been added in this Gouda cheese. The third cheese is our Baby Gouda Green Pesto. The Baby Gouda has been matured for 6-weeks and is a cute smaller version of the big traditional Gouda ‘wheel’. This Baby Gouda is enriched with green pesto ingredients, such as basil, oregano and garlic, giving it its beautiful green color. Added to the box is a beautifully egraved cheeseboard and cheese slicer mini. To top it off, a sweet fig bread has been added which is a great combination with all the cheeses.
The party package is an excellent gift for men, Mother’s Day or Valentine’s Day. Cheese is a delicious food that can be a great gift for any occasion.

Mixed cheese boxes are also a great option for creating a cheese board. With a variety of flavors and textures, you can create a unique and delicious cheese platter that will impress your guests. In addition to being a great gift or entertaining option, mixed cheese boxes can also be a convenient way to try new cheeses. They allow you to sample different varieties without having to commit to a larger quantity of a single cheese.
One of the best ways to gift cheese is by placing it on a cheeseboard, accompanied by some grapes or nuts. That’s why this party box is ideal, as it includes a cheeseboard for the perfect cheese platter or charcuterie. You can add any other cheeses you prefer to your cheese platter, ranging from gorgonzola, burrata, mozzarella, cheddar, brie, pecorino… the possibilities are endless!
Gouda cheese comes in many different varieties, including young, mature, and aged. Young Gouda cheese is aged for only a few weeks and has a mild, creamy flavor. Mature Gouda cheese is aged for a few months and has a slightly stronger flavor. Aged Gouda cheese is aged for several years and has a nutty, caramel-like flavor and a crumbly texture. The Old Amsterdam cheeses are all aged for a longer period of time and have a stronger, saltier flavor.
You can buy Gouda Cheese anywhere, from supermarkets to the traditional Gouda Market, and of course, at the Old Amsterdam Cheese Store. With three shops in the city of Amsterdam, there is always one close by when you visit the capital of Holland. So, go ahead and indulge in the wonderful world of cheese!
