Red Leicester is one of the most famous British cheeses, with the recipe being refined over centuries. Firm with a crumbly texture yet very smooth to the taste, with a slightly nutty flavor and notes of caramel.

Similar to an English cheddar but with a greater moisture content, it has a very smooth and creamy buttery taste. The signature orange color is brought about by the addition of annatto. You can taste the history of British cheesemaking in this cheese.
