Double Barrel Poacher is currently unavailable from the farm. Until more arrives, this selection will include delicious Isle of Mull Cheddar with a long fruity tang that comes from the cows enjoying fermented grain from nearby Tobermory Whisky Distillery.

Tasting Notes

Double Barrel Poacher - From the makers of Lincolnshire Poacher, this extra mature version is bold with similarities to both an English Cheddar and French Comté. Aged between two and three years to become strong and savoury, Double Barrel Poacher packs a punch with deep pungent flavours offset by bright and fruity notes. Unpasteurised cow's milk / Traditional rennet.
    Sparkenhoe Blue - Made by the Clarke family in Leicestershire, best known for their Sparkenhoe Red Leicester, this Stilton-inspired cheese exhibits a dense texture and delicate blue veining. Deeply savoury, it is creamy with mellow blueing and has a flavoursome natural rind. Matured for 14 weeks, this cheese is pierced at around six weeks to trigger blue mould development. Unpasteurised cow's milk / Traditional rennet.

      A very happy birthday boy!

      I bought this gift for my step father - a notoriously difficult relative to buy for! But he loves cheese, and who doesn't need another pair of socks?! He was delighted with the gift - the happy socks were a different design to the ones shown on the website - but in my opinion nicer - and they certainly seem to cheer him up every time he wears them. The delivery arrived on time and the communication from the courier was brilliant as I was even given a one hour time slot for the delivery arrival which made it really easy to ensure someone was home to receive the parcel (or to leave it in a safe place)

      Can’t go wrong with cheese.

      After reading the Lowestoft Journal l discovered Slate cheese shop and thought the Father’s Day gift would be ideal and a change from chocolate. Ordering was easy, delivery was good and information on the whole process was faultless. Thanks Slate, can’t wait to visit the shop.
