Stilton is one of Britain’s best known cheeses and this Colston Bassett Stilton is made to a specific recipe for us, with an ideal balance of fruity blue veins and creamy paste.
While Stilton is one of Britain’s best known cheeses, it is only made by six producers. Of these, the co-operative in the village of Colston Bassett, Nottinghamshire, is one of the smallest. It takes its milk from five farms located within in one and a half miles of the dairy, some of whom are shareholders in the business.
This is a classic selection in many senses. It is made up of the classic cheeseboard format of a hard cheese, a soft cheese and a blue cheese. It also contains some of our most popular and quintessentially British cheeses.
Please note, if you purchase multiple selections as one order, we will amalgamate them into one large box. Please contact us if you wish to have items packaged separately. Click here to find out more about our gifting service
