Mrs Bell's Blue
Creamy piquant cheese made with milk from contented English ewes
- Tasting Notes
A favourite of Rick Stein and Raymond Blanc, Mrs Bell's Blue is as creamy as her sister cheese, our Yorkshire Blue, but distinct in appearance via its whiter coloured body, contrasting beautifully with the blue/green veins.
Mrs Bell's Blue is made from the finest quality sheep milk. We produce in small vats and after the first 24 hours of turning and formation, we hand salt each cheese. Each batch is then matured for a minimum of 10 weeks. This achieves the complex blue flavour that’s comparable to Roquefort but creamier and mellower.
Mrs Bell's Blue launched in 1995 and made an immediate mark by winning two gold medals and Reserve Supreme Champion at the prestigious Nantwich International Cheese Show. It is our most awarded cheese on the international stage having won more than 75 top awards over the years!
Mrs Bell's Blue is considered to be one of the best ewes’ milk blue cheeses in Europe. The milk’s meadowy sweetness and the cheese’s saltiness deliver a rich, complex flavour. Milder than a Roquefort but punchy enough for any blue cheese fan.
