Murray's Stilton

$23.00/Lb


Made for centuries in England, Stilton has a storied and delicious history. Crafted with English cow's milk, this is the classic for a fudgy, buttery crumble with a mineral tang. An ivory white paste is veined with blue-green, tangy mold, imparting a piquant yet sweet pepperiness. Borrow from the Brits’ very sensible traditions and serve with Port and pears.

Pour a glass of...
  • Pinot Noir

    Lighter bodied and delicate. Old World style generally offers more funk, New World more fruit.

    Old World Pinot: Flavors of fresh cherries and raspberry balanced by a barnyard funk and high minerality. Sometimes has floral aromas, reminiscent of rose petal.

    Pair with: Almost anything! Works with funky Frenchies Epoisses and Langres, or mild natural rinds like Tomme de Savoie.

    New World Pinot: More sugary, with jam-like fruit, dried cherries, oak, and spice.

    Pair with: Full, fatty flavors. Alpines, cheddars, and Manchego.



  • Porters and Stouts

    Porter, Stout, Imperial Stout

    Welcome to the dark side of beer. Porters and Stouts are born of heavily roasted malted barley, which colors the beer and develops toasty flavors recalling chocolate, coffee, and chicory. Looks can be deceiving, though: dark doesn’t always mean strong. Porters and stouts can be incredibly light in body, or big boozy affairs that pour like syrup.

    Pair with: A mild, creamy blue like Cambozola Black.
