Ossau Iraty is a French, hard, unpasteurised, sheeps cheese.
Named for the two rivers of the Pyreneen region of France where the cheese has been made for centuries.
The flavour is nutty and intensely lamby, the texture firm and smooth becoming flakier with age. It is one of the most complex flavoured cheeses available with a taste that really lingers on the palate.
