Colston Bassett Dairy is the home of traditional Stilton. The dairy has been making outstanding cheese for over one hundred years and the farming co-operative which was first established in 1913, is still in operation today. The Dairy developed from the vision of a local doctor, Dr William Windley – they continue to make cheese in the traditional way, using milk from local farms – all within 1.5 miles of the dairy in the Vale of Belvoir on the Nottinghamshire/ Leicestershire border. All the cheese recipes have been handed down through generations. Renowned for its consistently excellent flavour, Colston Bassett is enjoyed by lovers of fine cheese all over the world.
