Lincolnshire Poacher (100g)
The marriage of a traditional cheddar style cheese and Swiss cheesemaking techniques lead to a cheese which is full-bodied and fruity in flavour. When Simon Jones first started to make this very fruity cheddar type cheese on the lush, chalky pastures of Lincolnshire, demand for it was so high that customers of the local delicatessen were limited to ¼ lb each! Vintage Poacher is matured for up to 20months which gives a wonderful, deep malty edge to the cheese and a lingering aftertaste. Made with un-pasteurised milk and vegetarian rennet.
Auld Reekie (100g)
Edinburgh is still affectionately known as “Auld Reekie” (Scots for ‘Old Smokey’), a nickname originating from the days when smoke from open coal and peat fires hung over the city like a fog. It comes as no surprise then to learn that this lovely crumbly, unpasteurized cheese from Cambus O’May in Royal Deeside is lightly smoked over old whisky barrel chippings for a smoky, peaty flavour Made with unpasteurised milk and vegetarian rennet.
