Sparkenhoe Red Leicester

Regular price £5.60
Unit price  per 

A handmade raw milk cheese produced by local dairy farm cows in Leicestershire. Made from a traditional recipe and matured and ripened for 18 months to give the cheese a rich, long lasting flavour.  The characteristic deep orange colour comes from the addition of a natural plant dye, Annatto, taken from the Achiote tree found in South America.

This is a vintage Red Leicester, so it will vein a little. It has a lot more flavour and is a lot stronger than you average Supermarket Red Leicester, so give it a try!


Made in Market Bosworth, Leicestershire

Cow's Milk, UnPasteurised, Traditional Rennet
