Cropwell Bishop Blue Stilton

Cropwell Bishop Blue Stilton has a rich, tangy flavour and a velvety smooth texture that makes it melt in the mouth.

Crafted by hand, using methods that have changed little since the 17th Century, Crompwell Bishop's Blue Stilton is aged for 12 weeks and exudes a level of quality that is hard to beat.

Proof is in the in fact that this is a multiple award-winning cheese. Supreme Champion of the World renowned Nantwich International Cheese Show in 2009 and more recently Supreme Champion Cheese at the 2016 Great Yorkshire Show.

The Blue Stilton Cheese PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) means that it can only be made within the English Counties of Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire from locally produced milk, pasteurised before use. Stilton can also only be made in a cylindrical shape, should never be pressed and can be allowed to form it's own coat or crust.

Cropwell Bishop have been making Blue Stilton since the 1920's (when they were called Somerset Creameries) and are now  only one of six dairies able to produce authentic Stilton under the PDO.

As with other blue cheeses, penicillium roqueforti blue mold is added to the milk. This is activated once the cheese has formed by piercing with sterile needles. This allows air to enter the body of the cheese, developing the characteristic blue veining in the open texture.
