About

Despite its name, Shropshire Blue originated in Scotland and is generally made now in Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire or Derbyshire. There is a lack of a convincing explanation for the name of this cheese because as far as can be ascertained, the product has never been made in Shropshire. Our Shropshire Blue is made by Cropwell Bishop, a family run creamery in Nottinghamshire.
