  • Durrus Óg Wins Best Irish Cheese at the British Cheese Awards

    7th June, 2017

    The prestigious competition, which took place in Somerset, judges 800 cheeses, and Durrus cheesemaker Jeffa Gill describes Durrus Óg’s success as a ‘a big win for a little cheese’. The award represents the latest accolade for the dairy which was named by Condé Nast Traveler magazine as the producer of one of the world’s 10 best cheeses in 2016.


    The semi-soft Durrus Óg cheese, with its distinctive pink rind, is handmade by Jeffa and her close-knit team on her farm in the Coomkeen valley just above Durrus village on the Sheep’s Head peninsula. One of four cheeses made on the small farm, Durrus Óg draws its character from the whole cow’s milk produced on West Cork’s rugged terrain and from the peninsula’s clear salt air which shapes the cheese’s flavour as it ages.


    ‘We’re delighted to receive this award, and very proud to represent the many wonderful cheesemakers who have contributed to building a really strong artisan cheese culture in Ireland over the years’, says Jeffa.


    The award comes at a moment when cheesemaking at Durrus is entering its second generation. Sarah Hennessy has recently returned to West Cork from Galway to work alongside her mother, Jeffa, and their neighbour and longtime team member Ann McGrath to help build on the growing reputation of Durrus cheeses. ‘It’s wonderful to have the work we’ve done over the years recognised by an award like this’, says Sarah. ‘This kind of recognition raises awareness of the cheeses we make here at Durrus and offers us great encouragement as we plan for the future too.’
