Colston Bassett Stilton

The Stilton we sell is from Colston Bassett Dairy in Nottingham, in our opinion the best producer there is. Colston Bassett Stilton is aged to three months and has a natural rubbed rind. This crumbly cheese with its even blue veins is very creamy with a lasting bite.

Award winning intensely rich and creamy Stilton , with a deep, lingering, complex flavour. Our best selling blue cheese.

Stilton’s origins date back to the 18th century when it was eaten at The Bell Inn, Stilton. Now a protected cheese, Stilton can only be made in the counties of Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire. Colston Bassett Stilton is often considered to be the best. Little has changed since they started making cheese in 1913, and they still use the milk from four of the original local farms that set up the co-operative in the beginning. The reputation of the dairy has gone from strength to strength, and it is now famous for making Stilton that is velvety and smooth, with a full, well-balanced, sweet and ‘mineral-y’ flavour.
