What you can expect

Our Old Amsterdam Cheese Store has a special cheese-tasting room where you can experience the character of Old Amsterdam cheese along with other unique Dutch cheeses.

During a 1-hour tasting experience, you will learn what it takes to become a real cheese-tasting master. You will find out how cheese is made and will be able to tell the difference between various kinds of cheese.The highlight of the sampling, of course, is tasting our Old Amsterdam made by Westland Kaasspecialiteiten, a family business since 1936 that also produces other excellent cheeses that you will taste, such as Maaslander.

The history of our family business and background information about our brands will be presented as well. Old Amsterdam, for example, is known as most famous Gouda cheese and is sold in more than 66 countries. Although its recipe is a well-kept family secret, the cheese-tasting event will reveal a few hints about how it is made.

The cheeses will be sampled along with a number of specially selected wines that best complement each one. To cleanse your palette between tasting one cheese and the next, we serve fig bread and water.

The cheese-tasting will take place on the ground floor of our cheese store at Damrak 62 in Amsterdam where our cheese-tasting room was designed to take you back to Amsterdam as it was more than a hundred years ago.
