Jake’s personal favorite: Smoked Gouda. This latest addition is flavored after it has aged at least 60 days. Not for the faint of heart, Jake’s Smoked Gouda has a smooth, smoked oak flavor. If you’re a craft beer lover, we have good news. Smoked Gouda pairs best with beer, especially Brown Ales, Bocks, Porters and Stouts. The smoky finish also pairs well with the crispness of white wines, including Champagne, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Sauvignon.
True Gouda needs to breathe so our cheese get’s plenty of air. Turned daily on pine planks to ensure uniform age and perfection for at least sixty days, it’s also a raw milk cheese – no high temp pasteurization here. The results? One of New York’s finest traditional style Smoked Gouda cheeses!
Once our cheese has been milk cream coated and naturally aged it lasts for 2-3 months on the shelf prior to opening. After opening just refrigerate and enjoy! Because our cheese is crafted and cut by hand, weight is approximate. Don’t worry though; we err on the heavier side. Because, lets be honest – more cheese is always better.
