Stichelton – Made by Joe Schneider in Welbeck Estate, Nottinghamshire
Juicy acidity and toasty, biscuity notes toward the rind are the hallmarks of Stichelton. The range of flavours this soft, creamy, raw milk blue can exhibit is extraordinary: from crisp green apple right through to beef stock umami. Joe works from a purpose-built dairy at Collingthwaite Farm on the Welbeck Estate on the northern borders of Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire and all the milk comes from their herd of 150 Friesian-Holstein cows. The name Stichelton is taken from the Old Roman village Name of Stilton.
