Made by Simon and Tim Jones in Lincolnshire this is West Country
Cheddar meets Comté, made using raw cow's milk and an animal
rennet. The cheese boasts a smooth, densely creamy texture and
flavours that can range from rich, savoury and brothy to long,
sweet and almost pineapple-like.
Colston Bassett Stilton
Made by Billy Kevan and team in Nottinghamshire this Stilton is
made using pasteurised cow's milk and an animal rennet. This is a
blue for those who 'don't like blues', and made exclusively for
Neal's Yard Dairy. Gentler, sweeter and more balanced than a
'typical' blue cheese, it boasts a creamy, buttery paste pierced
with the delicate blue veining characteristic of a Stilton.
