Sussex Slipcote is a fresh ewe’s milk cheese produced by the High Weald Dairy in West Sussex, England. In 2008, it won a Bronze award in the British Cheese Awards. According to the High Weald Dairy, the word “Slipcote” is an old English word that means a little (slip) piece of cottage (cote) cheese, whereas “Slipcote” also describes the tendency of the cheese to slip out of its rind during maturation. As depicted in Law’s Grocers’ Manual, the cheese is made in England since Middle Ages.  It has a refreshing taste with slightly sharp and lemony aroma.
