Colston Bassett Dairy was established in 1913 and today receives daily milk deliveries from five nearby farms. Fruity and mellow with buttery and earthy flavours, this Stilton has many fans. The paste is a rich cream colour with blue veining spread throughout and the texture is close and smooth. More information (including allergens) >
