At Close Leece Farm we received great feedback from our customers and judges for our chorizo. It is well spiced but there was clear demand for a spicier sausage. Accordingly we have taken our original recipe and increased the flavouring. The pimenton, garlic and cayenne are not shy, but still let the flavour of the wonderful Tamworth meat come through. For those with a taste for all things spicy this chorizo will not disappoint.
Winner of a Great Taste Award 2018
Great Taste Awards Judge’s comment – “Classic looking and coloured chorizo salami, nice and moist. An instant hit of chilli which may be a bit too strong for more delicate palates, certainly lives up to its extra spicy claims.”

About the Producer
Close Leece Farm is situated in the west of the Isle of Man. We specialise in making award-winning artisan charcuterie, handmade on the farm from our herd of pasture raised rare breed Pedigree Tamworth pigs and native Manx Loaghtan lambs. Tracey Ridgway, our founder, has ensured her core values - protection of rare breeds, the highest possible animal welfare standards and minimising our impact on the environment - are at the centre of everything we do.
We make our charcuterie by hand on the farm, using the latest techniques to maintain the highest quality standards, but with an eye to traditional charcuterie making. We spare no effort in producing the very best charcuterie and source the finest ingredients and best cuts of meat to ensure premium quality products.
Our amazing charcuterie has won us many awards. Amongst these, every one of our 10 core charcuterie products, with the exception of our Thermonuclear Chorizo (a recent addition), has achieved a Great Taste Award, including a coveted 3 star award for our Manx Chorizo.
