Gin-Flavored Cheese Sets the Internet Abuzz

Thursday, December 14th, 2017

After a spirited showing at the International Cheese Awards in Nantwich, England, earlier this year, The Cheshire Cheese Company is making headlines this week for an unusual flavored offering; the company has started churning up the press with reports on its Gin & Lemon Cheshire Cheese. That’s right—gin cheese.

Cheshire Cheese Company's Award Winning Gin & Lemon Cheese

“We bring you another world-first with our amazing Gin & Lemon Cheshire Cheese!” the company’s website says. “A masterful balance of Gin and Lemons with our award winning Creamy Cheshire cheese results in a totally unique and incredibly tasty Cheese blend.”

Press coverage of the cheese has exploded in recent days, though the tone of coverage has ranged from enthusiastic to skeptical. “This cheese won the Bronze Award at the 2017 International Cheese Awards. And who are we to doubt an award-winning cheese?” asked a report by online news source Mashable, and Vogue Australia expressed a similarly incredulous attitude in an article entitled “Gin flavoured cheese is actually real.”

Unfortunately for curious cheese enthusiasts, the company is currently out of stock “due to massive demand,” but the company assures that more is on its way. And Cheshire Cheese company offers 13 other varieties of cheese with unconventional flavors.

In addition to its recent Bronze, the Cheshire Cheese Company’s website boasts a number of accolades for its “eccentric” cheeses. The company has taken home Gold, Silver, and Bronze awards from the International Cheese Awards as well as the World Cheese Awards. Winners include the company’s Vintage Gold Extra Mature Cheddar, Sticky Toffee Heaven Cheddar, Black Bob Extra Mature Cheddar, and Smokey Redwood Cheddar varieties—as well as another high-octane offering: Cheshire Cheese Irish Whiskey & Stem Ginger Cheddar.
