L'amuse Signature Gouda hails from West Beemster in the Netherlands, where all the best, most traditional Beemsters and goudas come from. This is because the Beemster region is entirely man made, having been previously under sea water. Once drained and cultivated for farmland, the land maintained its mineral-rich oceanic soil, meaning a richer diet for the cows, and as such, a richer cheese for you. L'amuse Signature has a distinctive roasted hazelnut and burnt caramel flavor while still retaining it's velvety texture. Made with animal rennet.
Essex Street Cheese was founded in New York City in 2006. When they began, they sold just one cheese, Comté from Fort St. Antoine, at the Essex Street Market on Delancey Street in the Lower East Side. Though business has expanded and they no longer operate out of that shop, today they remain very focused on the highest quality cheese and only import a handful of iconic cheeses. Essex Street works directly with cheesemakers and agers to select consistently flavorful wheels and ship them from the source to you with minimal time in warehouse to ensure you are getting the best quality cheese at it's peak time.
