Speciality Cheese
£3.00

This award winning Ossau Iraty is produced in the mountainous Basque region of France, giving perfect conditions for grazing sheep to develop a beautiful sweet and creamy cheese with hints of nuttiness. Matured for 10 months to get the right balance of sweet and caramel notes. Produced at the heart of the Pyrenees mountains, this sheep’s milk cheese has a rich, creamy texture, developing notes of hazelnut and caramel as it ages. The Onetik creamery is located in the village of Macaye at the foot of the French Pyrenees Mountains. The creamery has been producing cheese for over 30 years, collecting quality milk from 3 varieties of sheep herded locally and grazed on the lush pastures of the mountains. Once the cheese is made it is affineured in the cellars of Onetik where it is brushed, turned and washed every 7-10 days whilst the flavour and texture develops until the maturation period is complete.
