For a flash of colour on your Christmas Cheese board, look no further than the stunning Shropshire Blue. Despite its name, Shropshire Blue is not made in Shropshire at all and is generally made in either Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire or Leicestershire. It is a pasteurised cow’s milk blue cheese with a semi-firm texture which is described as being a bit more mellow than a Stilton and edging towards qualities of a Cheshire! Over the course of maturation, this cheese develops a natural orange-brown rind and has a tangy aroma. The flavour is strong and sharp, with a metallic edge coming through from the starter cultures used.

TCG Top Tip: Enjoy with a glass of Port Noir for the ultimate Christmas combo!
