Quickes Red Leicester Cheese | 250g

Like all their cheeses, the Red Leicester is produced by hand using traditional methods. The curds are milled twice before being placed into the moulds resulting in a delicious crumbly texture. Maturing the cheese for up to 4 months provides a distinctive creamy flavour.

This product is made using vegetarian rennet.

Quickes Traditional make award-winning traditional cheeses using milk from their own dairy herd. Every truckle is handmade by one of nine skilled cheese makers before being wrapped in muslin and carefully matured for anything up to 24 months.

The Quicke family have been farming at Home Farm, near the village of Newton St. Cyres, between Crediton and Exeter, for over 450 years. It was 25 years ago that Sir John Quicke and his wife Prue built the dairy, where Sir Johnís daughter Mary continues to produce outstanding cheeses today.

Quickes cheeses are regular winners at all the major cheese shows, both in the UK and abroad.
