Blue Stilton has acquired Protected Designation Origin status and can only be made in Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire using milk exclusively farmed from the same 3 counties. The cheese is drum shaped with a thick, hard crust which is usually grayish-brown and slightly wrinkled with whitish powdery patches. The interior of the cheese is soft, rich and creamy but still has that distinctive blue cheese tang.
