Stilton, Colston Bassett

Country of Origin: England
Region: Nottinghamshire
City / Village: Colston Bassett
Type of Milk: Cow
Cheese Style: Blue
Flavor Profile: Strong

Nothing pleases us more on a cold winter evening than sharing a bottle of port and this rich, full flavored Stilton. However, Stilton makes a wonderful addition to a cheese plate any time of year, especially this one made by Richard Rowlett & Billy Kevan at Colston Bassett District Dairy, Nottinghamshire, England.†

This 'King of Blues' is made using pasteurized cow's milk and traditional animal rennet. Colston Bassett is one of the smallest Stilton Dairies in the country. The curd is hand-ladled before draining, which results in a luscious, creamy texture.† The rinds are dimpled and aged, bearing the marks of long months in the caves.†

The distinctive blue veins become more defined as the cheese matures, all the while maintaining a luxurious, silky texture and a long, fruity bite. Serve with a nice berry jam or a drizzle of herbal honey.
