If there was ever a cheese that would be synonymous with autumn and winter it would be Blue Shropshire. First of all it's orange (Autumn leaves, oranges floating in mulled wine etc...) and brings a flash of colour to your cheeseboard. Secondly, it's orange because it's made using annatto, a mild spice which has a sweet and peppery flavour. And thirdly, it's a warm and smoothing cheese, perfect for a chilly Winter's day. Essay over. Despite it's name, Shropshire Blue is not made in Shropshire, this particular cheese hails from Leicestershire from a Dairy with over 100 years experience in crafting epic artisan cheeses. We hope you love it as much as we do.

Delivery is FREE and it comes in a climate control box (the only in the industry) that comes with a 48 hour freshness guarantee. If that wasn't enough, we also add an insert that will talk you through the info on the cheeses, tasting notes and a scorecard to help you make the very most of your festive cheesegeek delivery.
