More Information

The cheese is matured for around 12 weeks (though this can be extended for a further 12 weeks leading to a creamier, fuller cheese) and has a 48% fat content.
The cheese has a vividly contrasting colour, between the blue veins and the clear orange of the curd, produced by the addition of the natural food colouring, annatto.
Shropshire Blue cheese has a strong and sharp flavour, similar to other Blue cheeses such as Stilton and Blue Cheshire, but substantially creamier. There is a sour, yeasty bite contained within the rich, mellowing taste, accompanied by a tangy aroma.
