Double Barrel Poacher

UP
C

A small number of Lincolnshire Poacher cheeses are specially selected for extended maturing. These become known as 'Double Barrel', a perfect choice for those who enjoy big punchy flavours. Double Barrel Poachers are matured between two and three years. Encased in a mottled grey-brown rind with the appearance of granite, this cheese is rich, strong and savoury. Deep pungent flavours are offset by bright and fruity notes. More information >

Tasting notes

In 2000, Simon was joined in the business by his brother Tim. Since then cheese production has expanded and now uses all 6,000 litres of milk produced each day by the farm's herd of 230 Holstein-Friesian cows. Just a small quantity of liquid milk is sold at local farmers' markets. The farm also makes Lincolnshire Red, an eye-catching semi-hard cheese, orange in colour from the addition of annatto dye, and butter to put the cheese making by-product whey to good use. After ripening for a few days, the whey is churned, salted and hand-patted to produce a rich, flavoursome butter with a marbled appearance.
