Sparkenhoe Red Leicester Cheese
A rustic Red Leicester, whilst being full flavoured there is an obvious nutty quality.
Out of stock
The orange-red colour comes from the traditional practice of adding annatto: a natural colorant.
This cheese is the revival cheese, responsible for the restoration of farmhouse Red Leicester, not to be compared to the vacuum packed cheese you see in the supermarket. Handmade on the Sparkenhoe farm, the same farm that stopped producing Red Leicester over 150 years ago, and started again in 2005. They use a traditional recipe, which involves fresh milk coming from the parlour room to the cheese making room at 4am every morning. After being cloth bound and matured for 4-6 months this cheese is still mellow with sweet and nutty flavours; a crumbly texture.
Our utmost concern is get you the right cheese in the right condition right to your door. All orders are posted on a next day service so as not to spend too much time in transit. Each package will come with a gel ice pack to keep the temperature in the box as low as possible.
