Reypenaer XO Gouda is a premium Dutch cheese that has been aged for at least three years, which gives it a complex, intense flavor and crumbly texture. The name "XO" is borrowed from the world of cognac, indicating that the cheese is of extra-old quality.
Reypenaer XO Gouda is made from cow's milk using traditional methods and is carefully aged in special cheese warehouses under precise temperature and humidity conditions. During the aging process, the cheese develops a rich, nutty flavor with hints of caramel and a crystalline texture that adds to its unique character.
Reypenaer XO Gouda is considered a gourmet cheese and is often served as a standalone item on a cheese platter, paired with wine or crackers, or grated over dishes like pasta or salads to add a bold flavor.
