Milk - Cow.
Country - Co. Cork, Ireland.
A smooth, soft washed-rind cheese with flavours that range from milky and buttery vegetable with a cocoa-like bitterness at the rind. The aftertaste is sweet and reminiscent of caramel, even chocolate!
Jeffa Gill, the creator of Durrus, was part of a pioneering network of women who sought to reinvigorate the art of farmhouse cheesemaking in Ireland in the 1970s.
