Whole Hartington Blue Stilton Cheese 8kg The King of Cheese
The ‘King of Cheese’ is the whole 8kg rind on Blue Stilton the very same ones we use to make all of the other cuts of cheese. Made using the same recipe first used to make Derbyshire Blue Stilton at the Hartington Creamery 1st April 1900. Our legendary rich intensely creamy Blue Stilton is handmade under the watchful eye of our own Diana Alcock – the only female licensed master Stilton maker in Britain.
Matured for 4-6 weeks before being pierced to allow the natural blue veining to occur, creating a wonderful texture and taste and it benefits from not being cut. This King of Cheese whole Stilton weighs approximately 8kg and will last up to 21 days prior to cutting. Consider slicing, wrapping and freezing to use up any excess cheese.
Did you know that the original Hartington Creamery dates back to the 1870’s and its founder was the Duke of Devonshire and the Chatsworth Estate
