Cheesemaker Claire Burt describes Burt’s Blue as a semi-soft ‘approachable’ blue with a creamy texture.
Each cheese is hand-made, which involves cutting the curds, ladling, moulding, dry salting and wrapping every single one.
It has been a real labour of love for Claire that is starting to reap rewards. Burt’s Blue won its first well deserved Gold in the Nantwich International Cheese Awards 2010 and Burt’s Blue Cheese was named Best Producer at The Observer Food Monthly Awards 2013.
Increased demand soon resulted in Burt’s moving to slightly larger premises near Knutsford in 2013.
Burt’s Blue Cheese is a semi-soft, award winning blue made in Cheshire, using top quality milk sourced from a local dairy. Each cheese is made in small vats making each cheese a labour of love. Burt’s Blue is a combination of craftsmanship and traditional cheese making, graded individually and wrapped to produce a rich and delicious cheese.
Burt’s Blue cheese can be found in many reputable cheese shops and delicatessens across the county as well as on the menu’s and cheeseboards of Cheshire’s best restaurants.
