Stinking Bishop

Crowned the smelliest cheese in the UK, Stinking Bishop gets its distinctive smell thanks to perry, a pear cider, which is used to wash the rind of the cheese. The result? A moldy exterior, a creamy texture, and an everlasting pungent smell. We visited Charles Martell & Son in Dymock, Gloucestershire, the only farm in the world that makes this cheese, to find out what makes it (and the perry it bathes in) so unique.
