A pairing made for sharing, fruit liqueurs add new dimension to the cheeseboard
With ripe fruit flavours, a soothing warmth and a long finish, Lyme Bay Winery’s range of eight fruit liqueurs are the perfect accompaniment to any cheeseboard, so the Devon-based winery has now hand-selected some of the south west’s finest cheeses for after dinner pairing and sharing. Bringing a taste bud-tickling end to any meal, feast or gathering, the new pairings are a carefully crafted celebration of the region’s artisan producers, including a match made in Devon with award-winning cheesemaker, Quicke’s.
Inspiring a new generation to understand and enjoy the pleasures of a traditional digestif along with the much-loved cheeseboard following a dinner party or Christmas get together, Lyme Bay’s mouth-watering matches represent a symbiosis of texture, aroma and taste. Made by blending its renowned Country Wines with a complementary spirit to 17% volume, each of the eight liqueurs now has its own wedge to work with.
Whether it’s Apricot Brandy sipped with Quicke’s Goat’s Milk Clothbound Cheese, a slice of mould-ripened Dorset White washed down with the indulgent and smooth Sloe Liqueur or a sliver of Cornish Blue served with the brooding and intense Elderberry & Port Liqueur, Lyme Bay Winery’s fruit liqueur and cheese pairings have something for any mood, occasion or palate.
