Colston Bassett Stilton


Made by: Billy Kevan

Milk type: Cow

Milk treatment: Pasteurised

Coagulant type: Animal

Location: Colston Bassett, Nottinghamshire

How it tastes: Stilton is one of Britain’s best known cheeses, and the Colston Bassett that we buy has an ideal balance of fruity and floral blue veining and creamy, buttery paste. 

Billy Kevan and his team make this Colston Bassett Stilton to a unique recipe that is buttery and silky in texture, but still has plenty of flavour. This cheese has the right balance between creamy paste and blue mould, so the piercing (which allows the air to activate the blue mould) happens later in the maturation process when the cheese has developed more flavour. Unlike Colston Bassett sold elsewhere, this cheese is made with traditional rennet, which imparts a more complex flavour.
