Colston Bassett Stilton Cheese

A well-balanced blue with a sweet buttery flavor.

Quick Overview:

Crumbly & fudgy but retaining a creamy texture that practically dissolves on the tongue. All hail the king of blues!

Quick Facts

Country of Origin: UK
Milk Type/Treatment: Pasteurized Cow
Rennet Type: Animal

The Flavor Experience

Colston-Bassett Dairy has been making Stilton the old-fashioned way since the early 20th-century. They source their milk from only five neighboring farms and that attention to detail and quality shows through in the finished product. This blue is formidable, there's no denying that. But the strength of the penicillium roqueforti doesn't overpower flavors of lush, grassy milk.

The Story

Colston Bassett Dairy has been making Stilton for over 100 years. It is that dedication to tradition that makes Colston Bassett Stilton the only Stilton you'll find in our case. Colston Bassett Stilton Stiltons are pierced less than others so that there is a richer, creamier texture. They work with only five farms in Nottinghamshire to source their high-quality milk.

Usage Tips

Tradition dictates that one must have port with stilton and you'll get no argument here. But if you're in the malty mood reach for a barleywine or imperial stout—preferably something with a little barrel age on it.

    I received this pairing gift from my son at Christmas. This is one of the best Stilton's that I have had in a long time (... since moving from England). It pairs nicely with the Blood-Orange Grappa Jam, Dark Chocolate Sea Salt and a nice glass of vintage Port!

    Phenomenal cheese. Simply the best. Great texture (recommend eating at room temperature). Fairly sharp bite but gentle after-kick, leaving a heavenly glow.
