We all love an Italian hard cheese but if you’re looking for an English or vegetarian alternative then Old Winchester is the one!
Lyburn Farmhouse Cheesemakers in the New Forest have created an old Gouda-style hard cheese that we love. Also known as Old Smales, this award-winning vegetarian and pasteurised cow’s milk cheese will please any cheese lover. With its distinctive nutty flavour, it’s perfect for your Summer cheese board!
We pair Old Winchester with a Fine Cheese Co. Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Sea Salt cracker which complements hard cheeses beautifully.
Lyburn Farmhouse is a fourth generation family operation and a real champion of artisan cheesemaking. Their pedigree cows produce about 1.3 million litres of milk a year, of which 50% is turned into cheese.
