Winner of the 2001 Best Exported British Cheese Award, Stinking Bishop is a washed rind cheese dating back to the Cistercian monks who once settled in Dymock where this cheese is made. Our variety is now made by Charles Martell, who works endlessly to carry on the traditional products of Gloucestershire. Washed in fermented pear juice (also called "Perry"), the cheese develops a stinky, pungent, orange-colored, sticky rind as Brevibacterium linens ripen the cheese from the inside out. At room temperature, this cheese will run across a plate. Named after the Stinking Bishop pear varietal from Gloucestershire, this cheese is a spectacular dairy experience.
