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.

You can select delivery dates up until 23rd Christmas. During Christmas week your cheese delivery could arrive +/- 2 days outside of your preferred delivery date. Your cheese will always be cut and wrapped the day it is sent out and you will get a delivery notification when your cheese is prepped, with tracking information when your cheese is on it's way.

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.
