Stichelton is the only traditional raw milk Stilton in the world. Since 1996 all Stilton has been made from pasteurized milk as per the production rules, but Joe Schneider and Randolph Hodgson of Neal's Yard Dairy saved the original Stilton recipe from extinction. Stichelton has juicy acidity and toasty, biscuity flavors with a long beefy finish. It has a creamy, fudgy texture and a ton of complexity. This exceptional and rare cheese is perfect for after a holiday dinner with a glass of Port.
