Great Taste is widely acknowledged as the most respected food accreditation scheme for artisan and speciality food producers.


Durrus Óg is a soft, young cheese that has a thin pinkish rind. The Durrus Óg was created in 2008 while tinkering around with sizes and maturity of our cheese. Having always melted the Durrus in one of our favourite dishes Tartiflette which would traditionally be made with French Reblochon, we were curious to see if we could create a version of our cheese that would more closely resemble this French classic. Hence Durrus Óg was launched and received a Silver Medal from the World Cheese Awards at it’s debut outing that year.

Durrus Óg continues to be highly acclaimed having been judged as the Best Semi Soft Cheese at the Artisan Cheese Awards in 2018 & 2019 as well as Best Irish Cheese at the British Cheese Awards, 2017. In 2016, Durrus Óg recieved the prestigious 3 Gold Stars Great Taste Award.

Durrus Óg is ideal on a cheeseboard, it also melts incredibly well in cooking and offers a great alternative to Reblochon in dishes such as tartiflette, pasta dishes, baked tartlets and more.
