The ridiculously expensive stilton is made with flakes of real gold and sells for around $130 per wedge.
The cheese will be produced by the Long Clawson Dairy in Leicestershire for a limited run this Christmas, with both the rich and famous already showing an interest in obtaining some of what has become known as Britain's blingiest cheese. "We wanted to create something special, a unique Stilton cheese, for the Christmas market - just a limited run to hopefully get more people interested in Stilton," said a spokeswoman.
Made from premium white Stilton shot through with a combination of real edible gold leaf and real gold liqueur, its creators say it is Britain's 'blingiest' cheese, 67 times more pricey than regular Stilton, which comes in at around 90p for 100g.
