Burt’s Blue 1kg


‘The Original’

Burt’s Blue is the flagship product of Burt’s Cheese, a semi-soft cheese made using pasteurised cow’s milk.

Our Burt’s Blue cheese develops a ‘mouldy coat’, which can vary seasonally from darker ‘green blues’ to paler ‘grey blues’ (and its edible – incase you were wondering!)

Each cheese is pierced by hand during the ripening process to allow the growth of mild blue veins through the paste.

The younger cheese is more resistance to the touch but this resistance gives ways to a much softer texture as the matures.

Tasting Notes

It is soft blue with its yielding texture it avoids the harsher notes sometimes associated with blue cheese, it has a slight saltiness, typical of blue cheese. The younger cheese is more resistant to touch, but as it matures this resistance gives way to a muchsofter texture.
