Colston Basset is the maker of a world renowned blue Stilton.
They have been producing Stilton to a protected recipe which has been hand-ladled since 1913 and they are only one of a few still left to do it in this process.
Colston Basset Stilton has a POD which is a protected Designation of Origin. This means that REAL Stilton can only be made in the counties of Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire.
Blue Stilton is a Great British cheese and can be dated back to the beginning of the 18th century.
Made with vegetarian rennet this pasteurised cheese tastes mellow creamy and rich taste with a signature Colston Basset slightly sweet and mineral tang.
Pair a wedge of stilton with some fresh fruit, a handful of walnuts and a glass of Port for a decadent supper or serve on a buffet and watch your guests fight over the last piece. It’s also an amazing cheese to cook with.
Any respectable cheese board should have Stilton as the star of the show.
