Rich and Creamy Stilton

Colston Bassett is an award-winning blue Stilton cheese that is creamy in colour and has blue veins running throughout. The texture of this delightful cheese is smooth with an enjoyable mellow flavour, without a sharp acidic taste.

Hand-made by Billy Kevan and his team in Nottinghamshire, Colston Bassett Stilton is one of the last remaining hand-ladled Stiltons. Colston Bassett dairy has been making cheese for over one hundred years and the farming co-operative, which was first established in 1913, is still in operation today.

Like all great Stiltons, Colston Bassett pairs perfectly with Port. We recommend our Paxton & Whitfield Tawny Port.
