Always a firm favourite! Sparkenhoe Red Leicester cheese has a creamy and mellow, slightly flakey texture with a developing, powerful finish. The addition of natural annatto gives the cheese its eye-catching deep orange-red colour.
Sparkenhoe is the only Red Leicester made today in Britain with raw milk. Expert cheesemakers, David and Jo Clarke make Sparkenhoe from their herd of 150 Holstein Friesian cows on their Leicestershire farm.
Pairing notes -Sparkenhoe goes ideally with a fruity light or medium red wine. Or a fresh light beer or ale, as it is an essential ingredient for the perfect Ploughmans lunch or amongst your cheeseboard.
