Product Description

Made using a traditional recipe, Rutland Red is buttered, cloth-bound and matured for six months to produce a flaky, open texture cheese with a slightly sweet, caramelised flavour and rich golden orange colour. It is the only pasteurised Red Leicester produced in the county of Leicestershire and is a firm favourite at Long Clawson Dairy. Pasteurised and suitable for vegetarians.

(this cheese was formally named Thomas Hoe Aged Red Leicester)

  1. The best, highly recommended 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Feb 2018

    Yes! My prayers have been answered. For over forty years I have been searching for a good Red Leicester, and at last I’ve found it.
    Rutland Red is, in my opinion, the best, finest Red Leicester. Tastes just like the Red Leicester from my boyhood. Smooth and crumbly and not too strong. Just right. Ordering some more!

  2. Proper Chese 5 Star Review

    The taste, texture and colour of Rutland Red cheese took me back to when I was a small boy and we used to get the our cheese from the Maypole shop. It's good to know that excellant quality cheese is still available.

  3. I never thought Red Leicester tasted like this 5 Star Review

    This is very different from the run-of-the-mill Red Leicester you normally get in supermarkets. Such a deep strong taste that lingers in the mouth and slightly crumbly - fantastic
