Creamy, steely and sweet. A powerhouse blue cheese made with milk from hard as nails Northern cows.
- Tasting Notes
Strong, steely and sweet, in other words, Northern!
A powerhouse blue cheese with serious credentials. Deliciously creamy and luxuriously more-ish, this cheese is is a strong arm to success.
Northern Blue was launched in 2019 as the more powerful and more mature brother to Yorkshire Blue. Aged for a minimum of 10 weeks, we use a stronger strain of Penicillium Roquefort to achieve a more robust blue flavour.
We took the launch batch to Bergamo in Italy to the World Cheese Awards and lo and behold we came back with a Silver medal! Northern Blue is recognisable as a Shepherds Purse signature blue cheese and its extra strength will also please those who like a bit more bite to their blue.
Northern blue is a creamy, powerful yet balanced blue cheese. Delivering a rich and creamy experience to the palate with a punch of blue.
