Smoked Lincolnshire Poacher is hand-made at Ulceby Cross near Louth by the makers of Lincolnshire Poacher. Made using fresh unpasteurised milk from their 230 strong herd of pedigree Holstein Fresian Cows. Traditional Lincolnshire Poacher cheese is smoked at a local smokehouse over untreated oak chips. The cheese spends 24 hours in the smokehouse which gives it a rich smokey flavour that compliments the cheese. The resulting cheeses are smooth, silky textured and lightly smoked with a rounded flavour. Matured for fourteen to sixteen months. This cheese has been a Gold Medal winner at the British Cheese Awards.
