The Long Clawson creamery has been making Blue Stilton for more than 100 years, and is one of the award winning makers of this noble cheese. It is of of 6 creameries in the world permitted to make Blue Stilton.
Blue Stilton has acquired Protected Designation Origin status and can only be made in Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire using milk exclusively farmed from the same 3 counties.
Long Clawson's award winning Blue Stilton becomes milder and mellows with age and a little more crumbly, making it a perfect introduction to blue cheese. The cheese is drum shaped with a thick, hard crust which is usually grayish-brown and slightly wrinkled with whitish powdery patches. The interior of the cheese is soft, rich and creamy but still has that distinctive blue cheese tang.
Like any other cheese, serve Blue Stilton at room temperature, with salty crackers and pair it with a glass of Shiraz.
We hand-cut and wrap the Blue Stilton in wedges of 1 pound and 8 ounces.
