Stilton is probably one of best known cheeses worldwide. Colston Bassett is regarded as one of the best traditionally made naturally crusted Stiltons in the country, known as the King of British Blues. This cheese is mature with good blueing and rich, deep, herbaceous flavours that linger on the palate. Mellow and creamy, this cheese is aged for at least eight weeks and is made according to time-honoured traditional methods.

Stilton was first recognised as a type of cheese at the beginning of the eighteenth century and named after the town of Stilton in Cambridgeshire where it is thought to have originated. Stilton has had PDO status since 1996, and can only be made in the three adjacent counties of Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, and Leicestershire, where producers have to follow traditional recipes. COLSTON BASSETT & DISTRICT DAIRY Limited was built in 1913, set up as a cooperative, and funded by a group of local people. The milk is largely produced from the same pastures.

Please note all cheeses are hand-cut, therefore the weights listed are approximate. We work very hard to cut them as accurately as we can!
