Please note Blue Cheese has a much shorter best before end date 7-14 days is normal.

Gold Winner at 2018, International Cheese Awards and Best Artisan Cheese at the Global Cheese Awards 2018. Our friends at Hartington Creamery 'The smallest Stilton producer in the world', make the creamiest, tangiest and best artisan-made Stilton Cheese.

The history of Stilton can be traced back to the early 18th century and although it is clear that the recipe used has changed quite dramatically over the years it remains one of the world's best known and much-loved cheeses. Quintessentially English, Stilton has its own Certification Trade Mark and is UK Protected Food Name.

This means that:

- it can only be produced in the three Counties of Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire
- it must be made from locally produced milk that has been pasteurised before use
- it can only be made in a cylindrical shape - it must be allowed to form its own coat or crust
- it must never be pressed and
- it must have the magical blue veins radiating from the centre of the cheese

Gold Winner at 2018, International Cheese Awards. Our friends at Hartington Creamery 'The smallest Stilton producer in the world', make the creamiest, tangiest and best artisan-made Stilton Cheese.

Made in small batches in the historic village of Hartington, Derbyshire. An intense extra creamy cheese and with a Gold Award one of the best in the world too! Stilton.

The Hartington Creamery makes its award-winning Stilton in the Parish of Hartington in barns that have been converted to a small scale cheese factory on the historic Pikehall Farm. Although Stilton had been made in the village since the 1870s No Stilton had been made since 2009 until a small team of artisan producers started the creamery and gained their PDO and the right to call their cheese Stilton in 2012.

Did you know..
Blue Stilton's distinctive blue veins are created by piercing the crust of the cheese with stainless steel needles, allowing air into the core. The manufacturing and ripening process takes approximately nine to twelve weeks.

For a cheese to use the name "Stilton", it must be made in one of the three counties of Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire, and must use pasteurised local milk. The manufacturers of Stilton cheese in these counties applied for and received Protected Geographical Status (PDO) in 1996.

Sending to the EU – CURRENTLY SUSPENDED
Due to unexpected events surrounding Brexit and the trade deal between the UK and the EU we have had to suspend the sending of any parcels to the EU. The reason for this is that the EU now requires an EHC document with every consignment sent into the EU. This is a Veterinary Surgeon issues health certificate costing £180.00 each. This is normally only a requirement for wholesale bulk shipments to any country, all non-EU countries have an exemption for personal consumption. The EU however does not have this arrangement and therefore both a pallet of cheese and a single cheese now require a health certificate. We are publicly fighting to change this situation and we very much hope that common sense prevails and freedom of choice for consumers is restored.
