Charcuterie has a rich history, but there are some varieties that are undoubtedly the classics. Our interpretation of these includes 5 Great Taste Award Stars between our Chorizo and Salami. Our Saucisson is a relative newcomer which will not disappoint!
All handmade on our farm with pork from our own pasture-raised Rare Breed Tamworth pigs.
This selection has won 7 Great Taste Award Stars!
Manx Tamworth Chorizo
Winner of a 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.
Supplied as a peeled 100g or 160g vacuum-packed stick. Ingredients – Tamworth Pork, Sea Salt, Pimenton paprika, Garlic, Wine, Demerara sugar, Oregano, Cayenne, Dextrose, Curing Salt, Vitamin C
Manx Tamworth Salami
Winner of a 2 star Great Taste Award.
Great Taste Awards Judge’s comment – "Super looking salami, nice dark meat with good firm texture and an even spread of fat, easy to cut, fruity in flavour with the garlic and fennel both noticeable in flavour. A very easy to eat classic salami”
After a trip to Italy and much sampling of artisanal Italian charcuterie we created the Close Leece Farm Manx Salami; a delicate blend of black pepper and fennel seeds with fine wine. The salami is perfect eaten with some fresh crusty bread or with a few slices of mozzarella and a drizzle of olive oil.

Winner of a 2 star award at the Great Taste Awards 2021.
Great Taste Awards Judge’s comments – "This attractive salami has an enticing meaty and aromatic nose that translates into a complex flavour profile that grows and grows and lingers long. We loved the chew, the mouthfeel and the fact that the spicing had maintained individual identity whilst melding together well and enhancing rather than overshadowing the flavour of the meat."
An evolution of a "small batch", our Manx Saucisson is slow cured and based on classic French recipes. We add spices that introduce notes of garlic, cloves, cinnamon and mace, with a hint of the finest Vodka. A Manx twist on a classic French style of charcuterie.
