A Perry washed rind cheese from famous award-winning cheesemaker Charles Martell. Aromatic, pungent and with a delicate flavour, the velvety, smooth interior is almost spoon-able with a glistening, orange-yellow rind.
This wonderfully eccentric cheese is created and produced in Gloucestershire by an equally eccentric, quintessential English gentleman, Charles Martell. Made from cow's milk and washed with perry (an alcoholic drink made with a rare variety of pears), this soft textured brown/pink rind cheese has a pungent smell. Stinking Bishop cheese, despite its alarming name, is mild in flavour and quite delicious. Aptly named after the variety of Pears Charles uses to create the Perry that he washes the cheeses with, the smell arises from bacterial action on the Perry washed rind. The cheese is supported with a beechwood lath and is wrapped in waxed paper.

Hunts Court Farm became home to the Martells in 1972. Over the past 4 decades, Charles has developed a range of hard and soft cheeses, the best known being Stinking Bishop.
Demand for the cheese increased suddenly in 2005 with the release of Aardman Productions' animated movie "Wallace and Gromit and the Were-Rabbit", in which Gromit uses the smell of Stinking Bishop cheese to revive Wallace at a village event, by holding it under his nose.
Stinking Bishop Cheese won Gold at the British Cheese Awards 2012. They are also proud owner of the Royal Warrant allowing them to supply the Royal family.
