Our mature Red Leicester offers a familiar, tangy flavor with hints of hazelnut on the finish. Rich savory and creamy on the palate, this cheese also boasts a bright orange color from the use of annatto. The coloring is so bold that Red Leicester really stands out on the cheese platter, often making it the first cheese that needs to be replenished. A perfect cheese for snacking, Red Leicester is also at home in sandwiches, hot or cold. A great melter, try it in omelettes, Mac 'n' Cheese or on nachos.

igourmet's Mature Red Leicester is produced for us by Belton Farms. Stretching back over three generations, the Beckett family have championed farming and cheesemaking traditions in the heart of Shropshire, England. They only use the very best, locally sourced, ingredients. Their milk comes from Belton Farm’s dedicated group of local dairy farmers (from within a 25 mile radius) who pride themselves on the quality of their grass-fed milk, along with the health and welfare of their cows. They source their salt from the historic local Cheshire salt mines, but their bespoke cultures (used to start the cheese making process) are unique to Belton Farm and a closely guarded secret.

  • Made from pasteurized cow's milk.
  • Photo depicts whole 5 lb. form of cheese.
  • We cut and wrap this item by hand.

What’s the best way to store my cheese?
The best way to keep cheese fresh is to store it in the vegetable crisper in your fridge. Before doing so, wrap in parchment or wax paper, then wrap loosely in plastic wrap. You can also buy our exclusive cheese storage bags, specially created to keep your cheese fresher, longer.

Unless used for cooking, we don’t recommend storing cheese in the freezer as this will alter its texture.

What is the best temperature to serve my cheese?
Remove cheese from the fridge an hour before serving, as cheese is best experienced at room temperature to enjoy the full spectrum of flavors.

How long will my cheese stay fresh in the refrigerator?
The length of time cheeses last in the fridge after opening depends largely on the type of cheese. Soft varieties tend to spoil more quickly than hard varieties. Please refer to the table below for a convenient reference:

How We Ship

FreshWave Packaging

Our products are always shipped so they will arrive at your door in optimal condition! We’ve carefully selected packaging options that have minimal impact on the environment without compromising on food safety or quality. 

For perishable orders, we line our shipping boxes with Tempguard - a unique, padded insulator made of 100% pre-consumer recycled paper material. We further control the temperature with recycled kraft paper fill and non-toxic frozen gel packs. In the summer months, we may include dry ice to ensure fresh delivery in very hot weather.

Note: Please join our efforts to be mindful of our environment and extend the life-cycle of our packaging, by recycling your shipping box, Tempguard liner, and kraft fill (all 100% curbside recyclable!). Store the gel packs in your freezer and reuse to keep your next picnic or road trip fare cool.
