PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Introducing the Colston Bassett Shropshire Blue Cheese, a true masterpiece in the world of cheese. This soft textured, mellow blue cheese is a feast for the senses, with its glorious contrast of colours between the vibrant orange hue of the curd and the delicate blue veins that run through it.

What sets this cheese apart is not only its stunning appearance, but also its exceptional taste. Made from pasteurised cow's milk and using vegetable rennet, the Shropshire Blue is a cheese that is crafted with care and precision. The addition of annatto to the milk gives it its distinctive orange colour, which is further enhanced by the deep orange-brown, natural rind that forms during the maturation process.

Speaking of maturation, the Colston Bassett Shropshire Blue Cheese is aged for a period of 10-12 weeks, allowing it to develop its full range of flavours and textures. Made in a similar way to the renowned Stilton cheese, this soft cheese boasts a sharp, strong flavour that is sure to tantalize your taste buds. Its slightly tangy aroma adds another layer of complexity to the overall experience.

While the Shropshire Blue shares some similarities with Stilton, it has its own unique characteristics that set it apart. Slightly sharper in taste and generally creamier in texture, this cheese offers a truly indulgent experience that cheese lovers will appreciate.

And here's some great news for our vegetarian friends - the Colston Bassett Shropshire Blue Cheese is suitable for vegetarians. So you can enjoy this delectable cheese knowing that it aligns with your dietary preferences.

Whether you're a cheese connoisseur or simply someone who appreciates the finer things in life, the Colston Bassett Shropshire Blue Cheese is a must-try. Its stunning appearance, exceptional taste, and vegetarian-friendly nature make it a standout choice for any cheese board or culinary creation. Indulge in the world of cheese perfection with this remarkable offering.
