Our Colston Bassett Stilton is sourced directly from Neal’s Yard in London and was first recognised as a type of cheese at the beginning of the eighteenth century.
It was given its name by the village of Stilton, just south of Peterborough on the Great
North Road, where it was first made and traded. Having originally being made in the town
of Stilton, protection by a certification trademark (PDO – Protected Designation of Origin) –
means that today the world famous cheese can only be made in the three adjacent counties
of Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire
