Shropshire Blue is an English, pasteurised, blue cows cheese.
Our Stilton's younger brother, Shropshire Blue is made with the addition of annatto, a natural colourant often used in cheese making.
The annatto adds a sweetness to the cheese and the stunning orange hue that stands out beautifully on a cheese board. The cheese is best at 6 to 8 weeks old so is less strong than our Stilton that is at least 3 months old.
When ordering your online cheese for next day delivery, remember that the perfect cheeseboard comprises a hard cheese, a soft cheese and a blue cheese. you can also include a goat's cheese, a sheep's cheese or perhaps a washed rind cheese. A cheeseboard can be purely British cheeses or French cheese, Italian cheese, Spanish cheese or can be a combination of artisan cheeses from across the world. Unpasteurised or raw milk cheese, traditional or vegetarian cheese, strong cheese, mild cheese, alpine cheese, smelly cheese, fondue cheese..... its up to you.
