Description


• Stilton cheese is unique among blue cheeses as it has a really long, slow set.
• Stilton cheese is pierced at 4 weeks before maturing for a further 8 weeks to develop its blue and break down the curd.
• Today only 5 producers of Stilton remain: Cropwell Bishop, Colston Bassett, Long Clawson, Tuxford and Tebbutt and Webster’s.
• Only two continue to make the cheese to traditional recipes that specify ‘hand ladling’ of the curds. The Fine Cheese Co. stocks both these cheeses:
- Cropwell Bishop ‘Traditional’ (differs from their standard cheese) and Colston Bassett.
- Stilton cheese should have a crinkled, light drab crust and an ivory paste with even blue veining radiating from its centre. The texture should be a creamy and smooth and the taste mellow but complex.
• Stilton cheese has its own trademark and protected status. Only cheeses that come from the vale of Belvoir (an area Nottinghamshire/Leicestershire/ Derbyshire) and are made with pasteurised local milk to the Stilton specification can carry the name.
(Hence Stichelton which is made with raw milk is excluded)
• Stilton cheese made with Spring and Summer milk produce the best cheeses (June - December cheeses).
