Red Leicester


SKU: 2835-1200 Category:


We make our Red Leicester to a traditional bespoke recipe that gives the cheese its distinctive characteristics, it is rich, savoury and nutty with a rugged texture.

Our Red Leicester is slightly sweet with an almost caramel flavour which builds up a more robust taste during the maturing process. A natural colouring, annatto is added to the cheese to denote its richness and creaminess.
