REGION Nottinghamshire, England
MILK Pasteurise Cow's Milk
Brothy - Nutty - Tangy
A rich and creamy Stilton with electric blueing, brothy flavours & a lingering finish.
From Neal's Yard Dairy Colston Bassett Dairy, which 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, is one of only five dairies in the world still producing Stilton – and the only one that continues the traditional process of ladling the curds from the vat to the cooling trays entirely by hand: an important step in achieving a smooth, rich-textured cheese. The milk is sourced from farms within 1½ miles of the dairy, and the head cheesemaker, Billy Kevan, is only the fourth person to have held the post in more than a century.
BEER Can’t go wrong with the dark beer either a porter or stout for a classic pairing
