The quintessential English cheese, Stilton is so beloved by its countrymen, it's said to be "worthy of a sonnet." The only British cheese to have both a certification trademark and an EU protected name, this iconic cheese is known for its radiating blue veins and distinct flavor. Now you can enjoy an authentic Stilton with our celebration-ready crate. Two generous wedges arrive tucked into a reusable wooden crate, along a trio of plump Comice pears, crisp honey wheat crackers, crunchy roasted nuts and a jar of award-winning honey to drizzle on top. A most appreciated gift for fans of this very special cheese, it offers an authentic taste of England's finest.

- Use & Care
- Refrigerate the cheese upon receipt. It is best stored in a vegetable bin or container away from the refrigerator fan. We recommend leaving the cheese in the packaging as it comes to room temperature, to prevent oxidation, which may affect the flavor.
- Cut and set out only as much cheese as you plan to serve, returning the rest to the refrigerator.
- Pears ripen at room temperature. For best results, place them in a closed paper bag or fruit-ripening bowl. You can tell when the pears are ripe by feel, as they will yield to gentle pressure.
- To experience the cheese's full flavor, serve at room temperature. For optimal flavor and texture, bring the cheeses to room temperature for approximately 1 hour prior to serving.
- Leftover cheese is best re-wrapped in parchment or waxed paper. Plastic wrap is not recommended. It is best to consume the cheese within one to two weeks of receipt.
