More About Colston Basset Blue Stilton ... The village of Colston Bassett lies near the Nottinghamshire/Leicestershire border, in an area known as the Vale of Belvoir. Many villages in this area had small Stilton dairies in the nineteenth century, most of which have now disappeared. 

Colston Bassett Stilton is produced with the curd being hand ladled before draining, which means the curd is handled gently and thus preserves its structure. Bottom line is a Stilton with a luscious, creamy texture when the cheese matures. The paste is crumbly when young, softening and darkening at the rind as it matures. It is a lovely creamy ivory colour with well-spread blue veining growing from the centre outwards. The aroma is sharply nutty and the flavor is full of mellow nuts and fruit. The flavor strengthens as it matures, hence the title, The king of cheeses!
