Cropwell Bishop Stilton

One of six Stilton producers in all of England, they work closely with 16 small family farms where cattle graze as often as possible on lush grasses of Peak District National Park.  They craft their Stilton the traditional way, using recipes passed down through three generations.  Using artisan methods like hand ladling the curd, and 'rubbing up' to set the curd.  The cheese is monitored and turned daily by hand during aging, and after 5 weeks the cylinders are pierced to allow the signature stilton blue veins to start their process.  When the cheese is done aging it is then hand wrapped and ready to go.  These hands on practices are shown in the quality of this wonderful English Stilton.  Award winning with a rich, tangy flavor and velvety, soft texture that melts in your mouth.

Westminster Rustic Red

Westminster Rustic Red was a cheese that happened by mistake!
A helveticus culture was added to a savoury cheese recipe by accident. The cheesemaker noticed the error of his ways too late and the cheese was made, over time the cheese matured into something magnificent. Sweet, nutty caramelised notes combined with a little savoury bite makes Rustic Red a wonderful cheese.
The helveticus culture, (indigenous to the alpine region of Europe) creates a slightly shorter texture and its signature snap/crumble when bitten It’s the perfect cheddar for your cheeseboard.
