Sparkenhoe Shropshire Blue
The UK’s only raw milk Shropshire Blue! Sparkenhoe’s Blue is made using similar methods to how they make their Red Leicester.
They add annatto to the milk, giving the cheese its glorious colour.
Flavour Profile: The cheese is a brilliant peach in colour with fantastic blue veins running through its core where the curd has begun to break. The taste is buttery and mellow with a gentle spice to finish.
Drink Pairing: This is the perfect partner for a lovely, full-bodied red. We recommend Talo
About the Maker: “Leicestershire Handmade Cheese Company is located in Upton, a small hamlet in the South West Leicestershire countryside on a working dairy farm called Sparkenhoe Farm. David and Jo Clarke are dairy farmers whose families have farmed in the area for generations. David manages the 150 head of pedigree Holstein Friesian cows and the 160 followers. The cows are fed on the farm’s lush pastures and calving takes place all year round to keep the milk supply as consistent as possible.”
How to Enjoy: This is best enjoyed on it’s own so you really get to taste all of it’s incredible flavours. We’re partial to having it with some ale crackers too.
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.
