milk typeCow
tasting noteMade identically to Stilton, except for the addition of annatto, a natural dye from South America found in traditional British cheeses such as Cheshire and Red Leicester. After the cheese is pierced, the blue mould forms, producing the gentle marbling that contrasts with the deep red hue of the cheese. Although usually considered tasteless, annatto is said by some cheese-makers to lead to a nuttier, earthier flavour.
