Colston Bassett Stilton
£5.35 – £9.35
Available from 7th December
Colston Bassett Dairy, in Nottinghamshire, was set up as a cooperative in 1913 and is still owned by a handful of local residents and the farmers who supply the milk. Colston Bassett is one of the last remaining hand-ladled Stiltons, which produces an intensely rich and creamy cheese.
Gentler, sweeter and more balanced than a ‘typical’ blue cheese, it boasts a creamy, buttery paste pierced with the delicate blue veining characteristic of a Stilton.
Made using pasteurised cow’s milk. Not suitable for vegetarians.
