A cousin of Blue Stilton, Buxton Blue is a modern, creamery, blue cheese made from cow's milk. It has thin blue veins running through its body and a wonderful deep russet colour that marks its appeal. The interior is pale orange and the flavour has a hint of dark chocolate and burnt onions on the finish. It has a Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) which requires that only the milk produced in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire be used to make the cheese. The taste and appearance is comparable to Shropshire Blue. Today, the cheese is no longer produced.

Still for sale, brought today from Morrisons. A lovely blue veined cheese, rich orange in colour, similar to Shropshire Blue, but not as strong in taste.
