Manx Tamworth Chorizo Winner of a coveted 3 star Great Taste Award. Great Taste Award judge -"The warmth of almost roasted garlic and spice was particularly enjoyed. Long, lingering sunny days here.”
We use only the very finest Pimenton, wine and other ingredients to produce a satisfyingly spicy cured meat, enhanced by the succulent fat of our rare breed Tamworth pigs. Perfect with light-bodied red wines.
Manx Nduja Winner of a 2 Star Great Taste Award. Great Taste Award judge - "A very good looking Nduja with a mature aroma and yet a soft and yielding paste. The meat has some wonderful texture, there is a warming pimenton growing on the palate and a sweet note which balances the heat. A great long finish and a peak of spice lasting long afterwards”.
Nduja has seen a surge in popularity over recent years, particularly as an ingredient to bring spice and colour to the finest modern cuisine. Close Leece Farm is well placed to make Nduja as the quality of the fat is paramount – and there is no better fat than that from a happy Tamworth! We cut no corners and source the finest ingredients and spices. The result is a spicy spreadable charcuterie – a surprise to many, but a treat to all.
Winner of a Great Taste Award. Great Taste Award judge - "A good natural colour with fine aroma on the nose. Rich pungent taste. Pleasant aftertaste which made the judges want more.. chews beautifully with creamy fat. Melts on the tongue. The judges enjoyed the feeling in the mouth and thought the balance of meat and fat was just right”.
The quality of the shoulder joint and neck of our Rare Breed pasture raised Tamworth pigs is exceptional. We have used it in all of our charcuterie and serve it in our café and restaurant with great success. So there was a certain inevitability to us developing a beautiful Coppa. Our master butcher prepares the joint carefully and we hang it for three months following the curing period. The final Coppa has a beautiful marbling and is a treat for lovers of charcuterie. Perfect at the centre of a charcuterie board or served solo with crusty bread and cheese.
Manx Pancetta Winner of a Great Taste Award. Great Taste Awards Judge’s comment – "A very tempting aroma enticing us in! Sweet and deep aroma - and this follows through on the palate. Porky and sweet, the fat and the pork have been cured well and dry-aged well.”
Manx Beef Bresaola Winner of a 2 Star Great Taste Award. Great Taste Awards Judge’s comments – "The slices are just the right size, beautifully rich and deep in colour with delicate marbling and an almost gamey aroma. The meat is incredibly tender and soft in the mouth. The flavours are gentle, coming through in layers with a wonderfully balanced delicacy and complexity on the palate. They linger and develop into an umami finish. If anything it may benefit from a hint more pepper but that's just a personal taste from the Judges. We loved the tenderness and craftsmanship." A fine example of this single muscle charcuterie. Made from Beef raised in the verdant pastures of the Isle of Man, by our team of expert charcuterie producers. The taste of the beef is clear and the meat is very lean. Our first Beef product and we are very pleased with it!
Manx Tamworth Guanciale Winner of a Great Taste Award Handmade on the farm with pork from our pasture-raised Rare Breed Tamworth pigs. An exciting addition to our charcuterie range is the Guanciale. A wonderfully tasty cured meat from the jowls, that brings real flavour to any dish. 60g sliced pack.Ingredients – Tamworth Pork, Sea Salt, Demerara sugar, Black Pepper, Paprika
Manx Smoked Air Dried Pork Loin A wonderful smoked air-dried loin made from our own pasture-raised Manx Rare Breed Tamworth pigs. Prepared with the same care and attention as our award-winning charcuterie. We are looking forward to taking this newcomer to competitions in 2021 as we think it is a great product!
Air dried smoked ham cured in orange, juniper berry and vodka A "small-batch" addition to our charcuterie range. Fruity juniper berries and oranges with a hint of vodka go exceptionally well with our gently smoked air dried Tamworth hams.
