Amsterdam, January 2017... There has been an incredible boom of cheese shops in Amsterdam, but my favorite is the Reypenaer flagship store on the Singel canal. Not only because of their award winning artisanal selection of cheese, but also because of the passionate staff, who tell and let you taste you all you want to know about cheese in their tasting room in the cellar of this historic canal house. In collaboration with the Dutchman, private cheese tastings during a cruise on the canals can be arranged. Tip: visit also the cheese warehouse of Reypenaer in Woerden (40 min. from Amsterdam) and did you know that cheese and whiskey is a great match too!
