Stinking Bishop cheese was once voted the UK’s smelliest cheese. Stinking Bishop is a soft washed-rind cheese produced since 1972 by Charles Martell and Son at Laurel Farm, Dymock. It is made from the milk of Gloucester cattle, which in 1972 consisted of only 68 Gloucester breed heifers. The breed has been revived to make production of the cheese possible.

The cheese created on the Laurel Farm was brought to international attention by a brief but important role in the Oscar-winning 2005 animated film Wallace & Gromit: “The Curse of the Were-Rabbit”, in which it was used to revive Wallace from the dead. Demand for the cheese subsequently rose by 500%.
