The Finest Cheese in the World!

Every year, nearly 5,000 cheeses gather from across the world in at the International Cheese Awards in Nantwich, Cheshire. In a series of specially conditioned rooms, they await judging by a panel of 190 experts to see who will be crowned King of them all.

This year, the title of Supreme Champion went to Claxstone Smooth Blue, produced by Long Clawson Dairy in Leicestershire. Already recognised as a national award-winning cheese, the judges’ choice of Claxstone was widely applauded.

The cheese is described as “a quintessentially unique English cheese, specially created for a soft, creamy texture and a mild taste. It is gentle and delicate compared to other blues on the market, yet still has that recognisable tangy flavour and has been crafted to be eaten straight from the fridge.”

It is available to buy from independent farm shops and delis, and Waitrose stores.
