The Cheese Lady's Recommended Pairings
|Style and Texture||Cheddar, firm|
|Drink||Red wine, ale, port|
A modern classic of the British farmhouse cheesemaking, made by Simon Jones and team at Ulceby Grange, Alford.
Matured for between 2 and 3 years, Double Barrel is selected for its rich, strong, savoury taste. Perfect for people who love their cheese to have a really big flavour.
Lincolnshire Poacher is a fascinating blend of two cheese styles - a farmhouse cheddar and Swiss mountain cheese.
During cheesemaking, the Curd is “cheddared” and passed through a chip mill, resulting in a somewhat crumbly textured cheese. It is however also very smooth, similar to Swiss Emmentaler.
Under the natural rind, the dense firm paste has a full fruity, nutty and sharp flavour that is very long and complex.
Enjoy Lincolnshire Poacher with craft pilsner, ale, and medium-bodied white and red wines.
