The name ‘Slipcote’ is an old English word meaning little (slip) piece of cottage (cote) cheese.
Sussex Slipcote has a light fresh creamy texture with a clean slightly sharp lemony taste. It is a mild, soft creamy cheese made with pasteurised sheep milk. It is similar to the French Boursin soft cheese in texture.
The cheese is a spreading cheese well partnered by crusty bread, biscuits, a jacket potato or stirred into pasta.
Other varieites with added flavours such as Garlic and Herb, Peppercorn and Basil are available.
