Aged Red Leicester (officially called Leicestershire) is a clothbound cheese that is matured for 6 months, resulting in a hard, flaky, beautifully orange cheese with a slightly sweet, caramelized flavor. It's the only pasteurized Red Leicester produced in the county of Leicestershire by the Long Clawson Dairy, also known for making the famous Blue Stilton.

Thomas Hoe Stevenson was one of the original cheesemakers from the heart of the Vale of Belvoir and he became a founding member of Long Clawson Dairy. The Thomas Hoe Stevenson version is now the the premium brand offered by Long Clawson Dairy and stands for century-old expertise and traditional cheesemaking skills, with a modern understanding of consumer tastes. The bold orange color comes from annatto which is a natural colorant made from the seed of the annatto tree. Try this cheese in British fondue with Blue Stilton or in your mac & cheese for a beautifully colored sauce.

In 2015 this traditional British cheese received a Gold Award at the International and British Cheese Awards.
