About Rutland Red Cheese

A deeply rich, nutty traditional Red Leicester, Rutland Red is one of our most popular cheeses. It is made in Leicestershire by the Long Clawson Dairy who are also one of the six licensed blue stilton makers. After production it is wrapped in cloth and then matured for six months. This gives it a smooth texture and a delicious caramel taste.

Tasting Notes

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.
