Extra Mature Cornish Gouda is aged for 18-24 months, and is an intense cheese, flavour packed; sweet buttery and complex. It has large crystals which give it an amazing ‘crunch’ and has addictive salted caramel, and toffee notes. It is much drier than the mature and semi-mature as a result of the longer drying but has an incredibly rich flavour, heading towards parmesan.
The Cornish Gouda Company produces beautifully hand crafted artisan cheeses on a small family dairy farm in Cornwall. The Dutch family moved over from the Netherlands in 1998 to start dairy farming. At the age of 19, Giel founded the Cornish Gouda Company to successfully diversify the family dairy farm. Giel produces Cornish Gouda cheese by hand using traditional techniques learnt in Holland.
