Proudly we present our specialties
Stompetoren cheese is available in ages from young untill very old. Every age has its own specific taste and bite. There are also special Stompetoren cheeses with less fat or less salt, and there a few types with additives as cumin or herbs. Read more about the different ages and types.
Young – matured
These cheeses are soft and creamy and have been rewarded several times in the National Cheese Competition. Because of the high humidity at the ripening location the cheeses are very creamy and do melt at the tongue.
Extra matured – old
These cheeses have been ripening for 7 months untill one year. During this ripening period the cheeses are checked several times by the ripening experts. The cheeses do still have the creamy bite, but the taste is full and strong. The old cheese also do have the white ripening crystals.
The Stompetoren Grand Cru cheese is the cheese that the ripening experts are most proud of. It has been ripening for 18 months and has a strong, salty taste. The cheese is still slicable and has a lot of ripening crystals. It is really irresistibly delicious for old-cheeselovers, especially in combination with a glass of port.
‘Once you have tasted Stompetoren cheese you do not have to explain anything more. My customers do not want any other cheese anymore!’ Marja Aarts, Delikasa Doesburg
The soft creamy texture of Stompetoren cheese, combined with fresh cumin seeds gives the cheese a nice, nutty flavour. The older cheese gets, the better the taste becomes.
For those who have to / want to eat less fat our Stompetoren 35+ is a very good alternative. Because of the special recipe the cheeses do have their own specific taste and are still creamy. There is also a Stompetoren 35+ cheese with cumin or herbs.
Allthough the Stompetoren cheeses do have less salt than average, there is also a special Stompetoren cheese with less salt. These cheeses do ripe for two months so they can develop the right taste. Low salt, but a lot of taste.
