Stilton Cut Cheese – Cut in Store. Net Minimum Weight per portion is 100g. For larger quantities please select in multiples of 100g.
Stilton was first recognised as a type of cheese at the beginning of the eighteenth century.It was given its name by the village of Stilton, just south of Peterborough on the GreatNorth Road, where it was first made and traded. Having originally being made in the town of Stilton, protection by a certification trademark (PDO – Protected Designation of Origin) – means that today the world famous cheese can only be made in the three adjacent counties of Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire.The perfect Stilton from Colston Bassett should be a rich cream colour with blue veining spread throughout.The texture of the cheese is smooth and creamy with a mellow flavour and no sharp acidic taste from the blue.The cheese is best eaten at around 12 weeks but this varies from cheese to cheese as each one is an individual. Melt in the mouth perfection is what Colston Bassett delivers.
