Alex James’ Blue Monday – has won several awards including Gold at the British Cheese Awards 2017 and Silver at the World Cheese Awards in 2019.

This is a rich pasteurised, sophisticated blue cows milk cheese created by Alex James, former band member of BLUR, turned cheesemaker in collaboration with Judy Bell. Hand made in Yorkshire and matured for a minimum of 12 weeks, it develops a wonderfully soft, mellow, creamy texture. With a faintly sweet, intensely savoury, spicy and rich complex flavour. The cheese has bold cracks and blue streaks with a thin natural rind.

Try enjoying this Gorgonzola Picante style cheese with a dark bitter ale or stout.

Please note all cheeses are hand cut, therefore the weights listed are approximate. We work very hard to cut them as accurately as we can!
