Colston Basset Dairy has been successful at this year’s Great Taste Awards being awarded three gold stars for its Shropshire Blue.

The Dairy’s Shropshire Blue has also made it onto the final list of the competition’s Top 50 winners and their Stilton cheese was given two gold stars.

Site manager Billy Kevan said: “We are very proud to have achieved such highly acclaimed recognition for our cheese.

“This is the third consecutive year that Shropshire Blue has received three gold stars, proof that our hard work continues to pay off.”

The Great Taste Awards are organised by the Guild of Fine Food and are the acknowledged benchmark for the speciality food and drink sector.

Just last week the Nottinghamshire dairy received awards for Best Stilton and Reserve Champion UK at the International Cheese Awards 2015.
