More than 200 judges sampled almost 4,500 cheeses from across the globe battling it out to be crowned ICA's Supreme Champion.

This year’s Supreme Champion of the International Cheese Awards 2014 and proud new holder of The National Westminster Cup is Nottingham's Colston Bassett Dairy for their Whole Blue Stilton.

Colston Bassett Stilton is a smooth and creamy Stilton with a mellow flavour, matured for around 12 weeks and made in the traditional way using milk from local farms within 1.5 miles of the dairy in the Vale of Belvoir on the Nottinghamshire/Leicestershire border.


Billy Kevan, General Manager of Colston Bassett Dairy, said:

“We are thrilled to have won such an outstanding accolade. Achieving Supreme Champion at Nantwich Show is recognition of the hard work by our team at Colston Bassett Dairy, in delivering consistently good cheese for almost one hundred and one years."

Well done to you, Bill.

Reserve Supreme Champion and winner of The Paul Smith-Palmer Memorial Trophy was Jaquin, exhibited by Buxton's Bradbury's Cheeses, for their Goat Cheese Ash.

This is a fresh goat’s cheese made by Fromagerie P Jacquin et Fils based in the Loire Valley, Berry and Touraine area of France. The handmade goats cheese pyramid is covered in ash and matured for two weeks in a cellar.

Supreme Retailer for 2014 and new holder of The Bel Trophy presented is Waitrose - this award is for the retailer gaining most Gold Awards in the show.

Bracknell based Waitrose were awarded 22 Gold awards including the Marks and Spencer trophy for best Farmhouse cheddar.

Morrisons came in second with eighteen Gold awards and M&S third with sixteen Gold awards.
