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. Rutland Red is an award winning cheese winning 3 golds at the Global Cheese Awards and 4 golds and the Tesco Red Leicester Trophy at the International Cheese awards.

Smooth textured hard cheese Nutty (peanut) Dry Balanced Apple-like acidity

Rounding up from 3.5/5, this is a very mild, cheddar-like cheese. Worked very well in a roux-based cheese sauce with mozzarella. No crystals or crunchy bits but a firm texture.
