The beautiful taste and creamy texture of Shropshire Blue cheese are matched by its wonderful appearance, with blue veins radiating through its deep-orange body. We unwrap the cheese and place in a semi-high humidity area. Increasing the accented piquancy of the cheese. Giving it a nice wholesome zap and a refreshing change to other stilton styles.

Shropshire Blue was awarded Supreme Champion out of 910 cheeses at the 2016 British Cheese Awards. It was also awarded a Great Taste Award in 2015 and again in 2017.

HERD

Holstein Fresians

Holstein Friesians are a breed of dairy cattle originating from the Dutch provinces of North Holland and Friesland, and Schleswig-Holstein in Northern German

MILK

Pasteurised

The process of pasteurisation involves heating milk to 71.7°C for at least 15 seconds (and no more than 25 seconds). Because of the nature of the heat treatment it sometimes referred to as the ‘High Temperature Short Time’ (HTST) process. Once the milk has been heated, it is then cooled very quickly to less than 3°C. The equipment which is used to heat and cool the milk is called a ‘heat exchanger’.

A Word on Rennet & Rind Maturing

"Unwrap and Leave it a semi height humidity area, occasionally turning, allow a development of a sponge like dew on the rind of the cheese. This technique prompts solid piquency, making it solid different that its brother Cropwell Stilton."
