Stichelton is produced on the Welbeck Estate in Nottinghamshire in conjunction with Neal’s Yard Dairy. This coarse-veined, blue, unpressed cheese is made from the unpasteurised milk of Friesian-Holstein cows,
Produced with a small amount of rennet and starter, the delicate curd is hand-ladled into a trolley, then salted the morning after the milk has set. The cheeses are then left to sit in hoops in a warm room for 5 days. The hoops are removed and the outsides of the cheeses are smoothed out by hand.
The buttery cheese is quite crumbly and has a lactic and malty aroma. It is lighter and less dense than Stilton and is salty and full-flavoured, with a bite in the blue.
Although it is produced in Nottinghamshire, it is not allowed to call itself Stilton. This is because Stilton has PDO status and must be made with pasteurised milk. As previously mentioned, Stichelton is produced with unpasteurised milk.
