Sparkenhoe Red Leicester

Sparkenhoe Red Leicester

Sparkenhoe is the only Red Leicester made today in Britain with raw milk on a farm in Leicestershire. David and Jo Clarke started making Sparkenhoe in 2005 from their herd of 150 Holstein Friesian and 160 other cows of various breeds.

It's eye-catching colour is down to Annatto, a natural plant dye, which gives the cheese it's vibrant orange colour.

David and Jo's commitment to relaunching the often tired reputation of Red Leicester has worked wonders - the Sparkenhoe Red Leicester offers a strong and powerful flavour which makes it an essential ingredient for the perfect Ploughmans lunch or as an accompaniment for the cheese board!
