Our Thomas Hoe Red Leicester is a hard, English, pasteurised, cows cheese.
This wonderful aged Red Leicester is made using a traditional recipe that has been handed down for generations.
One of our most popular cheeses, Thomas Hoe Red Leicester really stands out on a cheese board with its vivid orange colour that comes from the addition of annatto, a natural colouring that comes from a South American bush. It adds a subtle sweetness to the strong punchy flavour of this cheese which is also nutty, creamy and with notes of caramel. This is a million miles from the plasticy abominations sold in supermarkets, we are sure you will love it.
