Our Organic Blue Stilton has been awarded a two-star rating in the 2018 Great Taste Awards.
We’re especially proud of this award, as we’re the only Stilton-maker to produce an organic version of this iconic English cheese.
This year there were 12,634 entries into Great Taste, and after a series of blind taste tests, the two-star award was made to less than 10% of products that entered the awards – so we’re amongst excellent company.
The award judges include chefs, supermarket buyers and restaurant critics, who spend hour’s blind tasting products from all over the country. Some of the judges’ comments about our Organic Stilton included;
“Sharp, tangy full of flavour. Perfect saltiness. Acidity spot on.”
“Creamy unctuous mouthfeel, filling every corner of your palate. In perfect condition - ripe and ready to scoff.”
“A bold, creamy blue with a rich paste.”
“We love the style of this cheese, it is bold and brave - a true statement Stilton.”
We’re thrilled with the amazing feedback. And our success this year means that all the main cheeses in our product range now carry one of the famous Great Taste Award badges. Our Blue Stilton and Beauvale both hold the prestigious three-star and top 50 best product awards, and our Blue Shropshire has a one-star award.
Our fabulous 2-star Organic Blue Stilton is available to buy from our online shop.
