Old Amsterdam

The Gold Standard of Aged Gouda

Old Amsterdam is a multi-award winning aged gouda that’s imported from Holland. The original recipe is family-owned and a well-guarded secret. Old Amsterdam has a rich, full-flavor with butterscotch undertones and a smooth, dense structure sparked with ripening crystals. The cheese is a resounding success in both domestic and foreign markets; Old Amsterdam is sold in more than 60 countries around the world.

Old Amsterdam is a brand from the Westland Family. A family company established in 1936, it was the first company in Holland to come up with a branded cheese strategy and still is year-to-date the largest privately owned branded-cheese company in Holland. Nowadays the third generation is running the company, which is still 100% family owned.
