One of the most well-recognised and love cheeses from the Pyrenees in France.
Ossau Iraty is an iconic raw ewes' milk cheese from the Basque country and it is a real crowd pleaser with a sweet, nutty, caramelly and wonderfully lingering flavour.
Its sweet and butterfat-y elements appeal to beginner cheese lovers, while the nutty complexity charms the sophisticated palates of cheese connoisseurs. The more the cheese is aged the more its character it develops. Our Ossau Iraty is matured for a minimum of 10 months.
Enjoy Ossau Iraty with medium-bodied red wines.

Due to the relatively small scale of our cheese and condiment producers, occasionally some cheeses and condiments may be unavailable and we will have to substitute them with similar products. Please state in the notes on the Cart page, if you do not wish to have any substitutions.
