About this item

SOLD BY THE PIECE - 1/2 WHEEL OF STILTON.

A half wheel of Colston Basset Dairy’s wonderful Stilton cheese. You could share it with friends and family or keep it all for yourself! Approximately 9 lbs.

Stilton produces a loyalty and fanaticism like no other cheese. What other dairy product has a perfume modeled after it scent and an ice cream based on its flavor? People go loco for Stilton, and here’s why: it’s really awesome. In cheesemonger language that means it is so divine and universally adored that we can recommend it to blue-wary tasters and blue-lovers alike.

Colston Basset’s Stilton in particular is very buttery and savory with a sharp and delightful tang. It is bold, though not as strong as Roquefort or Gorgonzola . What always blows us away is that even though Stilton has been made for a hundred years, each gorgeously rustic wheel that Colston Basset Dairy sends us tastes slightly different. And that, friends, is what we love about farmhouse cheeses. Colston Basset stilton has been handmade in the Vale of Belvoir in Nottinghamshire since 1913. The only time the dairy has halted production was during WWII when there simply weren’t enough milk supplies or workers to continue.

Finally, Stilton is the only cheese in the world granted trademark certification status by the British government. It is truly the King of Cheeses.

Important Note: Do not pour your port over your Stilton. This is a waste of good cheese and good port.
