about

Castello Creamy Blue Cheese, in its iconic half-moon shape, is a true star in our portfolio. Born from trying to merge the best qualities of both brie and blue type cheeses. The high proportion of cream in the milk used for production results in a soft buttery texture and a milky taste. We like to think it’s going to taste creamier than anything you have experienced before!

    Castello Creamy Blue Cheese is not too strong, yet has a complex interesting profile with a delicately sharp flavour sensation.

  • HOW IT'S MADE
    • Creatively crafted in Denmark from fresh cow's milk and cream
    • Ripened according to traditional methods in large open vats
    • The cultures are added by hand
    • Each cheese is pierced in a unique star pattern to give a perfect distribution of blue mould
    • The cheese is also cut by hand when the cheesemaker decides it has reached the right state of firmness
    • Each cheese is inspected for quality before going into a pack

    Inspired by our desire to bring together the mild and delicate nature of a brie and a more intense profile of traditional blue cheeses, this soft creamy mould cheese brings out the best of our passion and ingredients.

  • HOW TO USE
    • Slice it and enjoy it on top of bread or crackers
    • Pick a pairing and enjoy as an indulgent dessert with your drink
    • Serve on a cheese board as an appetiser, a snack or a dessert
    • Elevate the flavour of your pizza, soup or salad
