Long Clawson Launches 1912 – A Stilton® Steeped In Heritage
A new Blue Stilton® is joining the raft of delicious, award-winning cheeses from Long Clawson Dairy this autumn, perfect for grazing boards, recipes and beyond.
Appropriately named 1912, after the year Long Clawson was established as a farming cooperative, it is made with milk from just over 30 local supplier farms. These farms, who also own the business, allows complete traceability back to individual herds, creating a Stilton® like no other, using the craft and care of the master cheesemakers with over 200 years of collective experience.
Stilton® has PDO status (protected designation of origin) which means it can only be made in and with milk from Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire. There are currently only six dairies licensed to take Stilton® in England.
1912 Artisan Stilton® has been developed using the knowledge and expertise, craft and passion of the master cheesemakers and it delivers a taste that takes you on a journey from pure creaminess to intense tanginess, with layers of flavour in every crumbling bite.
1912 Artisan Stilton® also wants to challenge the perceptions of Stilton®, currently used predominantly on a Christmas cheeseboard occasion. But it’s much more versatile than that – it can be used as an ingredient in cooking in a variety of dishes. The 1912 team are also working with legendary chef, Marco Pierre White, who has become the ambassador for the brand and will be featuring the Stilton® in his restaurants and pubs, as well as developing a range of delicious everyday recipes.
Sustainability is built into the ethos of the dairy too – with the member farms farming in the beautiful English countryside for over 100 years, passing down from generation to generation, understanding the need to take care of the land for the future. The goal is to create sustainable working farms that give back to nature and local communities with several initiatives in place.
