The flagship of Burt’s Cheese. Here is a semi-soft with gorgeous blue veins running throughout giving it a marble like aesthetic.
During maturation the cheese is pierced by hand to encourage the growth of these blue blotches and it’s the punctures of blue throughout give the cheese its character and flavour.
It is approachable with a creamy taste with subtle tangy notes from its blue veins and a slightly salty finish.
Flavour Profile: Burt’s Blue is an “approachable blue” with a bloomy rind of greenish, grey Penicillin Roqueforti mould. Its paste is off white in colour and luxurious in texture. It softens with age and can have a faint aroma of mushrooms. Burt’s Blue has a creamy taste with subtle tangy notes from its blue veins and a slightly salty finish.
Drink Pairing: Enjoy with our Niepoort Crusted Port or a fruit forward red wine such as our Miss Harry Shiraz.
About the Maker: Burt’s Cheese started out life in January 2009 in Altrincham, Cheshire. It was a career in the dairy industry that inspired Claire Burt to follow her passion for cheese-making. It started as a hobby on her kitchen table, but after winning Gold for Burt’s Blue Cheese at the International Cheese Show – Nantwich 2010, she decided to pursue the business full-time
How to Enjoy: It’s balanced enough to enjoy on its own, but it would also go great on a pizza or in a toastie.
