  • About Durrus

    Durrus is a soft cows cheese made with pasteurised cows cheese, durrus has a natural rind thatis developed slowly by washing it with cultures that are specific to Durrus Cheese. These cultures develop the mottled pinkish skin as the cheeses ripen in the curing room.

    The flavour of the Durrus can range from mild, mellow and grassy when young to rich, strong and earthy when aged.
