Sponsored Video – Blacksticks Blue Cheese

Butlers Farmhouse Cheeses based in Inglewhite, Lancashire have been making a range of hard, blue and soft cheese since 1932.  Their Blacksticks Blue (love the name) has a lovely ‘amber hue’ made its first appearance in 2003 the cheese has a huge following of fans including celebrity chef Simon Rimmer who describes it as “The Daddy of all Blue Cheeses”.

Blacksticks Blue Cheese
Using milk that’s delivered fresh everyday by their tanker driver Dougie who picks up from farmers just a down the road.  When the creamy milk has been lovingly transformed into cheese, it is then matured until it hits its perfect age and,as we all know, a good cheese takes time.   Once the cheese has passed Butlers experienced grader Bill’s stamp of approval, it is then ready to be released for sale across the country.  

Blacksticks Blue is milder and creamier than Stilton yet still has a tangy taste. The lovely amber colour looks great on any cheeseboard.  Available in all good supermarkets but can also be found in miniature whole truckles in Sainsbury’s and Booths this Christmas.  Marks & Spencer’s are selling a mouth-watering mini truckle with a fig glaze and dried fruits. 

The ideal cheeseboard really only needs to consist of three types of cheese: One hard, one soft and one blue.   Blacksticks Blue makes a nice change to the Christmas cheeseboard from the usual Stilton.
