  • About Durrus

    Durrus Cheese is the original recipe created by Jeffa Gill in 1979 in County Cork, Ireland. The natural rind of the cheese develops slowly by washing it with cultures that are specific to the dairy.

    It has won multiple national and international awards, including a Gold Medal at both the 2017 Irish Food Awards and 2017 British Cheese Awards

Flavour notes:
Mild, mellow and grassy, becoming richer, stronger and more earthy as it matures.
