Semi-soft blue cheese made in Oxford. It has springy soft creamy texture, with spicy, tangy and aromatic blue flavours. Fantastic British alternative to Dolcelatte or Fourme d'Ambert.
Robert Pouget saw a gap in the English blue cheese market for a semi-soft English blue which could rival imports such as Dolcelatte, Cambozola or Fourme D'ambert and as a result developed Oxford Blue in 1994 for the Oxford Cheese Company.
Hand made by Robert with pasteurised cow's milk, Oxford Blue is a full-fat soft, vegetarian cheese. Creamy with a distinctive blue flavour. Aromatic and spicy, this cheese can be paired with white wine and gives a salty and tangy flavour.

When Robert Pouget and Gerry Stevens opened their first cheese shop in Oxfords covered market in 1983 they had no idea that their cheese shop would be an instant hit. At the time there were very few specialist cheese shops in Oxford, and it proved to be a welcome novelty. Since then their cheeses have become some of the most popular cheeses in England.
Oxford Blue won gold at the 2001 and 2003 British Cheese Awards.
