Colston Bassett Shropshire Blue has nothing to do with the county of Shropshire, rather it originated in Scotland in the 1970's before production was transferred to Leicestershire.  It is made in almost the same way as stilton, except for its colouring, given by the addition of Annatto, a seed from a bush native to South America. The cheese has a full lingering flavour with a hint of nuttiness to balance the sweet blue notes.  More mellow than stilton, it is wonderful enjoyed with a stick of celery and a glass of dark beer.
