A hard dry textured cheese with a full strong flavour, made by traditional methods. Thomas Hoe Stevenson Aged Leicestershire Red is traditionally made in the heart of the Vale of Belvoir, one of the only pasteurised Red Leicester cheeses made in the county. Its lush red colour comes from annatto which is a natural plant dye obtained from a South American bush of the same name.
Matured to approximately six months, Thomas Hoe Stevenson Aged Leicestershire Red has an open texture and a slightly sweet, nutty, caramelised flavour reminiscent of the varieties produced in the county, from where it originated centuries ago. Mouthwatering.
