Coolea

Nutty, subtly balanced and rich.

Quick Overview:

Bringing Dutch tradition to an Irish cheese.

Quick Facts

Country of Origin: Ireland
Milk Type/Treatment: Pasteurized Cow

The Flavor Experience

Coolea is made by Dutch immigrants to Ireland, combining some of the best milk in the world with one of the superior cheese making techniques. This mature beauty has hints of hazelnuts, butterscotch and honey, but is not quite as sweet as most of the Dutch Gouda.

The Story

Dick and Helene Willems arrived in Ireland in the late 70's, having left their native Holland. Sourcing milk from a local herd of Holstein-Friesian cows, their production mirrors a traditional Dutch Gouda style, resulting in deeply-flavored specimens shipped around the world by Neal's Yard Dairy.

Usage Tips

Think bold reds like Bordeaux or Côtes du Rhône, or sweeter dessert options like Port.  Stunning with dark, malty beers like chocolate stouts or porter.

    Had expected this to be softer. Great taste. If ordering again would use it more like parmesan.

    All family members enjoyed Coolea. Nutty and flavorful on the hard side, but fantastic taste!
