Reypenaer Gouda VSOP 24 months
The Reypenaer V.S.O.P. is made in a traditional way by a small cheese factory. After this, the Reypenaer VSOP is historically ripened for 2 years in the unique micro climat of our old cheese warehouse in Woerden (Holland) with natural differences in temperature and humidity. The Reypenaer VSOP has an extraordinary intense taste with surprising mineral crystals and complex aromas: caramel, light chocolate and toffee.
About the family:
Piet started in 1936 with the trade in cheese, actually as a medium of exchange for the groceries who he provided to the farmers in the region of Woerden in the Netherlands, where he was paid by cheese. During that age, cheese got more and more important. His son Jan took over the company in 1946/47 and set out completely to the ripening process. The company developed slowly but steady. In the Netherlands the cheese was more and more appreciated. In 1975, the third generation showed up, with daughter Riet, son Jan and since 1995 son Rien. In 2019, the fourth generation joined with Jan, the son of Rien, together with Huug, son of Riet, in 2020.
