Red Leicester & Cracked Black Pepper

Suitable for Vegetarians

Our Red Leicester & Cracked Black Pepper cheese is perfectly seasoned thanks to a traditional, bespoke recipe that makes best use of our Red Leicester’s uniquely savoury flavour and rugged texture.

Unlike others, this cheese is a ‘vat-made’ cheese, which involves the Cracked Black Pepper being added to the cheese-make. This gives the cheese a typical cheese texture with a slightly sweet and almost caramel flavour, along with its interesting depth of flavour combination as a result of the additions.
