​Featured Cheeses in August 2019

Posted by The Cheese Shop on 3rd Sep 2019

In the month of August, we're featuring our blue babies.

Saint Agur

Our first feature is Saint Agur, a pasteurised cow's milk blue cheese found the world over, and for good reason - it's incredibly delicious!

It has a pleasing combination of medium strength blue cheese taste, coupled with extreme creaminess with its 60% fat content. It's no wonder it's one of our bestselling cheeses across our whole range.

Saint Agur is proof that pasteurised and industrial made cheese can be great.

Colston Bassett Stilton

After trying Stiltons from different farms, Colston Bassett which uses pasteurised milk is still the best. It has a pale ivory pate with a velvety texture and lined throughout with greenish-blue veins. Flavors are rich and lactic with a wonderful balance of blue mold, earth and butter. When young, wheels tend to have a slightly tangy edge but with age, this dissipates.

Colston Bassett Stilton won the gold medal at the 2014 World Cheese Awards.

Roquefort

Roquefort is one of the greatest of all French cheeses. Like all Roqueforts, Vieux Berger is produced from raw sheep’s milk. It’s aged in damp caves found under the village of Roquefort-sur-Soulzon, in southwestern France. Perhaps, its uniqueness can be attributed to the fact that it’s the Roquefort produced on the smallest scale.
