The Perfect Pairings

20cl Cheeseboard Martinez

Sipsmith have crafted a sensationally sippable gin, Cheeseboard Martinez; designed to perfectly complement a cheeseboard.


Inspiration was taken from popular cheese accompaniments, including aperitifs like the Martinez and fortified wines, to create this special blend. A combination of barrel-aged sweet vermouth with a fig and grape-heavy gin, simply delicious when sipped neat with your delicately picked cheeseboard. Soft, fruity and pine-like to the nose, with smooth juicy-forest fruit flavours and a light smokey, warming spice accompanied with a bitter orange hint to finish.


Vintage Poacher

Poacher gives you everything a great Cheddar should, but on top of that, another layer of deep burnt butter, nutty happiness that just makes you want to curl up in a ball and giggle


We call Poacher The Cheddar Slayer because so many people we know who love cheddar now call poacher home. For this magical pairing, the fruity and light smoky notes of the Martinez work well with the farmy alpine/cheddar characteristics of the Poacher - comforting and smooth, lingering and nutty classic but with a deep fruity twist. 


Cropwell Bishop Stilton

Cropwell Bishop Stilton is rubbed with salt to develop a strong and rich but creamy cheese with a lingering tang.


Cropwell Bishop Stilton is rubbed with salt to develop a strong and rich but creamy cheese with a lingering tang. The flavours are strenghtened by the blue mould veins that run throughout. The blueing of the Stilton added a bit of zing to the pairing - overall boozy, fruity notes without being too overpowering. The Martinez works well to cut through the creaminess in the cheese.


Perl Wen

Perl Wen, similar to a Brie/Camembert style of soft cheese, with the same earthy and mushroomy notes, but with a much fresher flavour


Perl Wen, similar to a Brie/Camembert style of soft cheese, having the same earthy and mushroomy notes, but with a much fresher flavour. It is a true twist of the classic Brie and cranberry flavour pairing. In relation to this match, the acidity in the cheese works well against the gin and the fresh flavours of the cheese works to lift out extra fruity notes from the gin -  a very festive tasting combo.
