Stilton Cheese, Colston Bassett, Traditional vegetarian Blue cheese
Firm but creamy and full of flavour
DESCRIPTIONStilton Blue cheese from the Colston Bassett Dairy is one of the best Stiltons available in our opinion. Colston Bassett Stilton is creamy, full of flavour without being overpowering, it's a true blue of the cheese world!
Stilton was first known at the beginning of the eighteenth century. Stilton cheese was originally made in the town of Stilton, but now the PDO(Protected Designation of Origin) stipulates that it can only be made in the three adjacent counties of Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire.
Stilton is a rich cream colour with blue veining all the way through, smooth and creamy with a mellow flavour and is best eaten at around 12 weeks.
This is a great value blue to have on a wedding stack although you wouldn't think it by the quality! Pictured second cheese up in both wedding cheese images on this page.
