Colston Bassett & District Dairy

Harby Lane, Colston Bassett, Nottinghamshire, NG12 3FN
One of Britain's foremost Stilton producer.

Stilton cheese is protected by law in a similar way to the French appellation d'Origine Controlee system - so all must be made within a defined area. The Colston Bassett Dairy is a cooperative just using the milk from six nearby farms.

They were the last to give up using raw (unpasteurised) milk, but they still produce Stilton with the most character.

A whole (full-sized) cheese weighs in at over 7 kilos, but a 'mini' version is more manageable at 2.5 kilos.

Conveniently, because of the length of the maturing process, cheeses are at their very best around Christmas!

For Mail Order go through Neals Yard or The Fine Cheese Company.

If you enjoy cooking take a minute to look at ‘Simon Scrutton French Cookery Classes’ on Google – and learn how to make top class bistro-style dishes. Suitable for beginners upwards. Small classes.
