Buying Tips

In selecting Stilton, look for cheese that has the blue mold spread out to the rind. The taste is intense, and the cheese should be rich and creamy, not dry and crumbly. Stilton purchased when it is too young can be bitter and dry; ask for a taste first. It matures in 9 to 15 weeks.


Stilton is a protected designation of origin (PDO) cheese. It is the only British cheese graced by its own certification trademark.
