Description

Old Winchester

Old Winchester is based on a Gouda recipe. Gouda recipes call for the cut curds to be washed after draining. This removes lactic acid from the curd, making Gouda characteristically sweeter and also prolonging its life. Various tweaks to the original recipe has led to a Gouda/Parmesan/Cheddar cross, and a cheese that is unique to the Smales family.

On their farm in the New Forest, Mike and Judy Smales make this modern British classic.  In 2000, 30 years after they first started farming, the decline in milk prices led them to find an alternative outlet for their milk.

So, with the milk of a herd of 180 cows and a basic Gouda recipe they began. Lyburn Gold was their first creation: a young semi-hard Gouda, with a meadowy, buttercup taste. After the first year, Mike and Judy nervously entered the British Cheese Awards, and medals followed.

Some liken this cheese to an aged Parmesan.
