Blue Cheese

These cheeses range between hard and soft, mild and strong, but always have distinct blue or green veins running through them. The veins are a type of penicillin and are usually introduced by hand into the interior of the cheese with the use of a metal spike.

Oxford Blue Cutting

Moist and creamy with a delightful tang from the blue veining leaving an aromatic and spicy aftertaste in the mouth.

Oxford Blue Cheese is the brainchild and product of Baron Robert Pouget of the Oxford Cheese Company. It is produced for him by Hartington Dairy and was first produced in 1994 with the intention of supplying Oxford University Colleges and the pubs and restaurants of Oxford.
The popularity of Oxford Blue soon took off, and the product was stocked not only in the intended area of Oxford, but in the flagship stores of London and further afield.

The Oxford Cheese Company wanted to find a formula for a cheese which would have some resemblance either to Gorgonzola or to the soft or semi-soft French blue cheeses. At the time, this style of English Blue was not readily available on the market.

Oxford Blue is soft with a creamy texture and a sweetness that compliments well the tang of its blue veins.
