Victoria Urresti - Cheese Expert and World Cheese Awards Top 16 Judge."Exceptional cheese, incredible lingering taste in the mouth. So much personality, it is an honour to taste this" Roland Barthelemy - Cheese Expert and World Cheese Awards Top 16 Judge.Harrogate Blue is a stunning addition to any cheese board, golden-bodied and matured for a minimum of 10 weeks, the optimum time for the cheese to develop exactly the right depth of flavour and creaminess.The cheese has been a hit since day one, winning its first award just two weeks after launch in 2012.
