Lidl launches new gin-infused CHEESE as part of its Christmas food range

There's nothing better after you've stuffed yourself silly with turkey, stuffing and Christmas pud than a festive cheese plate.

Paired with a glass of red, most would say that it rounds off the dinner perfectly.

And, while cheese and wine have long been a traditional end-of-dinner pairing, supermarket Lidl has decided to shake things up.

Yes, you read that correctly, Lidl is launching a truckle of cheese infused with gin.

"Two of my favourite things in one!" said one gin and cheese fan. "That’s gotta be a good thing!"

Costing just £1.99, the cheese – available in store only – is part of the Deluxe Cheese Truckle range.
