Northern Blue: The Bold and Unforgettable Northern Flavour

“Strong, steely, and sweet, in other words, Northern!” This eloquent description perfectly captures the essence of Northern Blue, a cheese with a personality as bold and robust as the region it hails from.

This powerhouse blue cheese boasts serious credentials that are sure to leave a lasting impression. With its deliciously creamy and luxuriously more-ish character, Northern Blue is more than just a cheese; it’s a testament to strength and success.

Launched in 2019, Northern Blue emerged as the formidable and mature sibling to Yorkshire Blue. Aged for a minimum of 10 weeks, this cheese takes a bold approach by using a stronger strain of Penicillium Roquefort to achieve a more robust blue flavour. The result is a cheese that stands tall and proud in the world of blues.

The journey of Northern Blue took it to the grand stage of the World Cheese Awards in Bergamo, Italy, where it proudly earned a Silver medal. This recognition solidified its status as a Shepherds Purse signature blue cheese, one that captures the hearts and palates of those who appreciate a cheese with a bit more bite.

When you taste Northern Blue, you’re not just indulging in cheese; you’re experiencing the spirit of the North, embodied in every strong, steely, and sweet bite. Whether you’re a connoisseur seeking a bold companion for your cheese board or simply someone who appreciates the irresistible allure of a powerful blue, Northern Blue is your ticket to an unforgettable taste adventure.
