Buxton Blue Cheese

Buxton Blue is a russet-coloured blue cheese, with light blue veins made in Buxton, Derbyshire, England.

It is cylinder shaped, with a tangy taste.

The cheeses are made from cow's milk that comes mostly from the areas of Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Staffordshire. The milk can come from Shropshire and Cheshire during shortages.

To make the cheese, annato, rennet and blue mould culture are added to the milk. When the milk has curdled, the curd is cut, scalded, and drained, then salted and moulded, pressed and wrapped. The sides are pierced to let air in, and the cheeses are aged for 10 to 12 weeks.

Buxton Blue Cheese is made by Dairy Crest, J M Nuttall Group, Hartington Creamery, Hartington, Derbyshire.


Fat content of 45%.
