Stilton is one of the most celebrated cheeses in England, and Colston Bassett Dairy handcrafts ours in Nottinghamshire. Colston Bassett purchases their milk from five neighboring farms. The truckles (cylinder wheels) are hand-selected by Neal's Yard Dairy for us and are produced to their specifications-they must use traditional rennet and are less pierced. Hence, the sweet, buttery flavors shine through and balance the blue, minerally tones.
