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.

During checkout, you will be able to select your preferred delivery date. This is great if you're buying as a gift or are organising your cheese in advance. The cheese will be packed in chilled, insulated boxes (that look great!) and will always be prepared on the day it is dispatched. A few other handy pointers:

- We use DHL nationwide and Packfleet within the M25

- Please use the delivery date you have selected as a guide rather than a guarantee.

- Your cheese will arrive in the best condition. It will have been prepared freshly and will not have been with our courier beyond our maximum of 48hrs

- You will receive delivery notifications for when your order is dispatched that mean you can track when it’s in transit

If you aren’t in for your delivery, this won’t matter. Our couriers will leave your cheese in you designated safe place in our climate controlled packaging.

We’re a small business working with an (incredible) perishable product. For advice on delivery or any cheesy questions, get in touch via the live chat or on hello@thecheesegeek.com
