When it comes to cheese, the smellier, the better. So, it’s no surprise that Aldi Scotland has welcomed the country’s smelliest cheese available into its stores as part of Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight, launching 4th September. 

Renowned for its nutty and smooth taste, but perhaps better known for its pungent smell, the aptly named, ‘Minger’ by Highland Fine Cheeses (£2.29; 250g) will be available in all of Aldi Scotland’s 96 stores from 2nd September, whilst stocks last. 

Despite being a favourite with cheese lovers for its distinctive flavour profile, the name has caused quite the stink, with some retailers refusing to stock the produce unless it is rebranded. However, at Aldi Scotland the team do not judge a book by its cover, and are dedicated to showcasing the best of Scotland’s larder… whatever the smell.  

Stocks aren’t expected to last long, so grab your Minger while it lingers in Aldi Scotland’s 96 stores. Find your nearest Aldi here
