West Cork, Ireland
Made by Durrus Farmhouse Cheese
Durrus is a unique cheese. Definitely a member of the washed rind family, but simpler, heartier. Its flavor is earthy and funky, like cream of mushroom soup and roast goose. Cheese maker Jeffa Gill began this cheese in 1979 on her stove top. Now she makes in a traditional copper vat. As with most British and Irish cheeses, the finest examples of this cheese come from the aging rooms at Neal's Yard Dairy.
