Ossau-Iraty AOP

Regular price Dhs. 62.50

Ossau-Iraty (or Esquirrou) is a traditional ewe's milk cheese from the picturesque mountains of Pyrénées that hold a fertile grazing land for the milk-giving ewes. Its flavours are herbaceous, nutty and fruity if the produce is from winter while the summer cheeses tend to reveal aromas of grass and flowers.

La petite histoire: This cheese unites two regions of France in the Western Pyrénées: the "Ossau" valley of Bearn and the "Iraty" Forest of Basque Country. 

Our Ossau-Iraty is awarded AOP ("Appellation d’Origine Protégée", which means Protected Designation of Origin). The AOP mark is the highest distinction awarded by the European Union and confirms the excellence of a product, its artisanship and unimpeachable quality.
