Royal Blue Stilton by Long Clawson - 2.5lb. Half Moon Cut
Long known as "The King of Cheeses", Blue Stilton is one of a handful of British cheeses granted the status of a "protected designation origin" (PDO) by the European Commission. Only cheese produced in the three counties of Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire and made according to a strict code may be called Stilton. There are just six dairies licensed to make Stilton, each being subject to regular audit by an independent inspection agency accredited to European Standard EN 45011.
To be called Stilton, a cheese must:
be made only in the three counties from local milk which is pasteurized before use
be made only in a traditional cylindrical shape
be allowed to form its own crust or coat
have delicate blue veins radiating from the center
have a taste profile typical of Stilton
Made by the Long Clawson dairy, this product is perfect for snacking and as a part of the cheese course, but also is a wonderful cheese for salads and cooking.
Made from pasteurized cow's milk.
