We think this must be true love as we bring you one of our most delightful partnerships to date, a tale that's not quite as old as time, but as magnificent and enchanting as you can imagine. We're talking three of the most charming cheeses paired with a glorious gin, finished off with some damson fruit cheese, for that extra bit of tastebud explosion. Cheeseboard Martinez isn't your average gin, it was designed specifically for cheesegeek cheese by the legends at Sipsmith. Perfectly paired to your softies, goat's, blues AND hards resulting in a combination that is just as smooth as Dean Martin's voice. That's amore.

Sensationally sippable gin, paired with three artisanal cheeses

Three phenomenal artisan cheeses, a Blue, a Brie and Mrs Kirkham's, sealed with a kiss or 10, with the most elegantly devised gin, created specifically for our cheese by our friends at Sipsmith. Add a little Damson Fruity Cheese for a extra little zest. 

When the world seems to spin like you’ve had too much gin, that’s amore. When your life seems a breeze, like you've had too much cheese, that's amore

The Perfect Pairings

20cl Cheeseboard Martinez

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

More

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.

Mrs Kirkham's Lancashire

Mrs Kirkham's is a romantic cheese through and through - refined and elegant.

More

Winner of a 3 Star Great Taste Award 2019, Mrs Kirkham's is top of its game for a traditional British Territorial cheese. It’s the last remaining raw milk Lancashire made in Britain, so it really is a slice of history. It is made with a recipe passed down through generations that produces an amazing depth of flavour. It has all the classic milky, lactic yogurt notes, accompanied with the trademark Lancashire crumble with a lovely, deep buttery angle.

Cropwell Bishop Stilton

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

More

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.

Back

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

More

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.
