  • Shropshire Blue

    Similar in style to Stilton Cheese, but a little milder, it is recognisable due to its distinctive orange rind. Despite the name, Shropshire Blue seems to have originated in Scotland and is generally made now in Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire or Derbyshire, rather than Shropshire.

Flavour notes:

Rich and creamy with delicate sweetness. Generally milder than Stilton with no bitterness or sharpness.
