Durrus Cheese



Durrus is a semi-soft cheese with a washed, yellowish-grey rind.

Inside, the cheese is dotted with small holes, and has a buttery texture with complex aromas.

It is made in two sizes: 380g rounds (5cm x 10cm) and 1.5kg wheels (18cm x 6cm.)

The cheese is made from raw cow's-milk curdled with animal rennet, and aged 4 to 5 weeks.
