Artikaas, imported exclusively by Dutch Cheese Makers, is cooking up excitement in the cheese case. The brand recently introduced a new offering to the mix, as it ventures into sheep Gouda: Holy Sheep.
“We’re extremely excited to expand our line by adding our first sheep Gouda,” said Jessica Frey, Marketing Director. “Using sheep’s milk to make a Gouda-style cheese is quite unique in the Netherlands. Holy Sheep is a testament to our commitment to crafting exceptional Dutch cheeses that embody over six generations of innovation, tradition, and an unwavering dedication to quality. When consumers taste this cheese, they’ll say, ‘Holy Sheep, that’s good!’”
Embodying the spirit of the brand with item names such as Hay There and Youngsters, Holy Sheep playfully nods to the common expression used when surprised or astonished.
The new Holy Sheep is an aged Gouda made from 100 percent sheep’s milk and is available in 9 lb wheels and 6 oz cuts. Crafted with precision, Holy Sheep boasts a refined flavor profile that is nutty, decadent, and slightly sweet, highlighted by the delicate essence of the pastoral countryside.
Holy Sheep offers a sophisticated addition to any cheeseboard. As noted in the release, it is made from sheep’s milk derived from family farmsteads in Holland. It is aged for over nine months, giving the cheese its distinctive mouthfeel and crystalline texture.
