Lidl Is Selling Gin-Infused Cheese For Christmas And We Are Drooling

Lidl Is Selling Gin-Infused Cheese For Christmas And We Are Drooling

'Tis the season for tucking into a generous cheese board of the tastiest, creamiest camembert, washed down with a delicious tipple or two.

Now Lidl have stepped up to the plate (quite literally) with a combination of the two: a deliciously smooth, gin-infused Wensleydale. Yes please.

Described as "supple and crumbly" in texture, the cheese is given an extra flavoursome kick with the addition of Lidl's iconic Hortus gin.

For a festive twist, the Wensleydale is studded with dried fruits, giving little nuggets of sweetness in every mouthful, rather like a chutney would.

If a gin and Wensleydale combo doesn't butter your cracker, there's also the Christmas Tree Smoked Cheddar, a bold and mature cheddar flavoured with the woodiness of Nordic pine and a soft smoky flavour.

Presented in gorgeous forest green wax casing, it's a real showstopper, and the ideal centrepiece for those Christmas Day cheeseboards.

No festive cheese selection would be complete without a stunning melt-in-the-mouth option, and this Deluxe Large Baking Camembert for (£5.99) will impress your guests and feed the whole family.

With all that cheese, you'll be wanting some chutney. Lidl's Deluxe Fig and Balsamic Chutney (£1.19) gets our vote - sweet, tangy, and a tasty alternative to the usual caramelised onion options.

From the same range comes a luscious Apple & Pear chutney - great for cutting through the cheese with a refreshing fruity tang - as well as a Christmas Spiced option laced with clove and cinnamon.

Not forgetting the crackers. We love Lidl's Rivercoat multigrain crackers, which have an satisfying snap and crisp texture, and cost just £69 per box.

All of Lidl's festive cheeses are available in store now.

Now all we need is a bottle of wine or three. Sweet dreams really are made of cheese.
