Winner of a coveted 3 star award at the Great Taste Awards 2018.
Great Taste Awards Judge’s comment – “We tried this thinly sliced, then more thickly sliced - and were wowed by this quality chorizo. The warmth of almost roasted garlic and spice was particularly enjoyed. Long, lingering sunny days here.”
Handmade on the farm with pork from our pasture-raised Rare Breed Tamworth pigs.
Having been avid fans of European charcuterie for over 20 years we have sampled almost every variation available. A firm favourite is the finest chorizo from Spain. It comes as no surprise then, that the first charcuterie produced by Close Leece Farm was a Manx Chorizo.
After much experimentation, the production technique and blend were perfected. Only the finest ingredients were considered worthy, from the wine to the various Pimentons. The result is a satisfyingly spicy cured meat, enhanced by the succulent fat of the rare breed Tamworth pigs. Perfect with light-bodied red wines. However, we always prefer a glass of Rioja!
Sold as either a 100g stick, peeled and vacuum packed to ensure freshness or in their skins and wrapped in paper for the fully authentic experience (priced by weight).
I tried a bit of this at the food assembly, its really fabulous, good taste and a hit of chilli, I can't wait to buy some at the food assembly.

This has to be the best product I have ever, ever tasted that calls itself a Manx product. Just ate a whole pack on my own.......... This is spot on in flavour & texture. Noone else is allowed it - it's all mine!

Really enjoyed the Chorizo, and I thought it was lovely and spicy, but I could certainly eat it more spicy.... A lovely product.

Hi - just to say thanks for your excellent chorizo and sausages. I bought both at the Southern Show this morning. The chorizo went at lunchtime and the sausages this evening - they really were outstanding. Hope to see you again soon.
