The beautiful taste and creamy texture of our Blue Shropshire cheese are matched by its wonderful appearance, with blue veins radiating through its deep-orange body. Our Blue Shropshire was awarded Supreme Champion out of 910 cheeses at the 2016 British Cheese Awards and gained one-star Great Taste Awards in 2015 and 2017. In 2019, it went one better gaining a prestigious two-star award.
We craft this cheese in a similar way to our Classic Blue Stilton, using vegetarian rennet.
How to store
Like most cheese, our Blue Shropshire should be stored in the fridge and brought up to room temperature before eating. Once opened, cover the cut surface of the cheese with cling film.
How to enjoy
We recommend pairing this cheese with simple water biscuits and pudding wine. Watch Robin pair it with some more unusual drinks options here. Find recipes for Blue Shropshire and our other cheeses here.
