DŽIUGAS® is designed to be enjoyed in company or as an individual indulgence. With a mouthful of DŽIUGAS®, time almost stops while you savour the pure pleasure of its taste. It’s the type of sensation you just want to talk about and share with friends. There’s smooth creaminess and savoury strength balanced by light fruity/floral overtones. This is the signature that underpins all DŽIUGAS® cheese, but along the different phases of ripening, it offers surprisingly different variations of taste.
DŽIUGAS® has a trademark flavour that is easy to recognise at every stage of maturity. The different stages or ages at which it is sold are: ‘mild’ (over 12 months), ‘piquant’ (over 18 months), ‘delicate’ (over 24 months) and ‘gourmet’ (over 36 months old). As the cheese ages and ripens, the quality and flavour is improved and the characteristic taste deepens and develops.
