Stichelton is one of very few unpasteurised English blue cheeses. It is made by Joe Schneider using organic cows milk from Collingthwaite Farm on the Welbeck Estate, Nottinghamshire, on the edge of Sherwood Forest
Flavours are cool and buttery with underlying nutty toasty notes. There is a spicy element from the blue mould but alongside that is a long lasting savouriness and caramel-like sweetness. The layers of flavours expand and develop in your mouth as you eat and last long after swallowing.
