Ossau-Iraty is a raw milk, pressed sheep’s cheese from the Ossau Valley and Irati Forest in the Pyrennes.  It is the only French sheep’s milk cheese, besides Roquefort, granted AOC.

 

An uncooked and pressed cheese, Ossau-Iraty is semi-hard in texture with a thick, buff rind marked with rust and gray molds. Beneath the brown and orange rind is an ivory white, supple and slightly grainy interior that has a creamy and buttery mouth feel. Flavours are herbaceous, nutty and fruity if the produce is from winter while the summer cheeses tend to reveal aromas of grass and flowers.

 

To maintain quality, our cheese inventory is constantly refreshing. We cannot guarantee that a cheese is in stock at a quantity sufficient to fill on order.  Orders for out of stock or limited quantities will be notified, substitutions recommended and purchases partially or wholly refunded if necessary.  

 

1-2 day shipping is required at checkout.  Cheese is shipped on Monday - Wednesday in insulated packaging with cold packs.  Cheese should be refrigerated immediately after receipt.  

 

All our orders are sliced by hand. Slicing cheese is an inexact art.  Weights are approximate and will vary.
