A long, long time ago in the 18th century Red Leicester was originally made on farms in the county Leicestershire, using surplus milk once all the Blue Stilton had been made. Orange/red in colour, the cheese was given this golden hue with the addition of carrot or beet juice but is now coloured with annatto a natural food colouring from seeds.
Double Gloucester cheese - with its deep orange hue and nutty taste - is perhaps most famous due to a centuries-old event called cheese-rolling: on the last weekend in May every year, men and women chase a wheel of Double Gloucester down Cooper’s Hill in Gloucestershire, England. This spectacular event has been happening almost every year for at least 200 years, and past participants have even included Edward the Explorer. The prize? A wheel of Double Gloucester as big as the one they launch down the hill, fortunately, here at the Castle, we can help you enjoy the cheese without the chase.
