Summary

In England, Stilton isn't just a cheese – it's an institution, displayed with pride on sideboards in pubs and restaurants throughout the country. Our aged Stilton from the historic Cropwell Bishop Creamery in Nottinghamshire lives up to its reputation as the king of British cheeses. Aged for three months, the cow's milk cheese has the variety's characteristic blue veining; rich, complex flavors; and a moist, firm, yet crumbly texture. Stilton is traditionally served after dinner with a fine port or Sauterne, fruit and nuts – the perfect ending to a holiday meal.

  • Weighs 2 lb. minimum.
  • Shipped chilled.
  • Made in England.
Use & Care

Receiving Instructions

  • Refrigerate the cheese in the vegetable drawer upon receipt. Unopened, it keeps 1 month refrigerated, 2 weeks when opened. After opening the package, scrape away excess surface mold. (An earthy-looking mold is normal on a well-aged cheese.) Wrap any unused portion in waxed paper or in cheesecloth covered with aluminum foil.

Preparation

  • For optimal flavor, serve the cheese at room temperature. Traditional fare in English pubs and restaurants, Stilton is often paired with port, crusty bread, sweet butter, English biscuits, walnuts or pears. After you've eaten the cheese, the shell remains; pour in wine and dip chunks of bread.
Ingredients
  • Pasteurized cow's milk, salt, vegetarian rennet, dairy cultures (milk), mold cultures (penicillium roqueforti).

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST CHEESE EVER!!! I buy the Stilton wheel every year. It is the best blue cheese that there is. I have tried every brand, worldwide, and this beats them all. WSI has a great price, also. Stilton is not a cheap priced cheese. Great to melt down with sautéed onions and pour over filet mignon and al make a great dipping sauce for French fries.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stilton I buy this every year as soon as it comes out. The best Stilton I have ever had. Wish WS carried throughout winter months

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid. Product not kept refrigerated This arrived spoiled. I've been buying Stilton for the holidays for 25 years and this one tasted like rind all the way through. It is spoiled and clearly not kept properly. We threw it in the trash as it was inedible. I will never order this from WS again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy this Cheese! I buy this every Christmas as gifts for my family, clients, and of course, myself. Rave reviews. I have never had a better product from WS. I tried to buy more in January and it is unavailable. Wish they carried it through the cold winter months as I would a buy a wheel per month. Keeps well, extraordinary flavor and texture. I have tried other Stilton and none compare to this product. Nice blue veins...not the horrible green seen so often in poorly kept or old Stilton. Buy this cheese.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Stilton available The Stilton from Long Clawson Dairy is the best around. I have tried lots of other Stilton, but theirs is definitely the best tasting. I order this every year for Christmas. This 2 lb. wheel will last you several weeks. Love, love, love this cheese. Highly recommend. Worth every penny. One year I tried another Stilton and it was nowhere near as tasty as this one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spectacular I nearly had a heart attack when I could not find the wonderful round 2-lb. stilton in the catalog this year. Fortunately it occurred to me to look online before it was too late. For several years we have given these cheeses to whichever households were hosting Christmas family gatherings, and this year we finally got one for ourselves. It is marvelous to the last crumb. Some people cut it into wedges, but we just dug into the middle, and now we are finally eating the thin walls and the bottom. Still delicious. Of course if you don't like blue-veined cheeses in the first place then it's not for you, but it's not too strong for dedicated cheese lovers.
