The Muti-Award-Winning Colston Bassett Blue Stilton.
We are privileged to stock one of the country’s creamiest and most sophisticated Stilton Cheeses. Colston Bassett Blue Stilton is an intensely rich and creamy Stilton , with a deep and complex, residual flavour. It comes from one of the smallest Stilton dairies in England. The curd is hand ladled before draining, which treats the curd more gently and preserves its structure which results in a luscious, creamy texture when the cheese matures. Delicious!
The cheese takes its name from the village where it is made. The village goes back to the Domesday Book.
This extraordinary Stilton has racked up a swathe or recent awards. 2020 started positively when Colston Bassett was named as one of the top three Best British Cheese Brands in the Guild of Fine Food’s ‘Best Brands’ survey.
Colston Bassett triumphed once again, with multiple star success at the 2019 Great Taste Awards. It’s Stilton took home one Great Taste stars. It was also the seventh consecutive year that the dairy has collected stars – proof therefore that their hard work pays off!
Adding to the success, Colston Bassett Stilton won Best PDO / PGI Cheese at the 2018 Royal Bath & West Show in Somerset. The Whole Blue Stilton took home two golds.
