Shropshire Blue is made by Billy Kevan and his team in Nottinghamshire. Shropshire Blue was invented by a Cheshire cheese grader called Dennis Biggins in the 1930s.


Location: Colston Bassett, Nottinghamshire


Our work with this cheese


We visit Billy Kevan many times a year. He makes a special recipe of Shropshire Blue for us. Effectively it is Stilton with annatto colouring to make it orange. The annatto has a very mildly spicy flavour and is considered to soften the texture a little but its effects on the flavour are not very strong. The Neal's Yard Dairy Shropshire Blue uses animal rennet and is pierced only a few times resulting in more complex flavours and less intense blueing than in Shropshire Blue from other dairies.
