Colston Bassett Stilton Blue Cheese
A decadently rich and creamy, with a smooth, lingering complexity.
Strong in flavour while remaining smooth and creamy, Colston Basset is a blue cheese whose veins become more strongly defined as the cheese matures.
A cool fact – this is the only cheese to be recognised by HSE to be safe to be had by pregnant women! So if you’re pregnant and like blue cheese.. this is your go to. If you are not pregnant and like blue cheese, we still recommend it!
What can we say? It is salty, creamy, and has a little acidity to it! At room temperature this blue cheese is almost spreadable! All in all, it is a CLASSIC stilton – so expect all your favourite stilton flavours!
Like all great stiltons this is one for a Port! We recommend any of our Tawny Ports which you can find right here on our website!
