Speaking of expensive cheese, Italian and French cheeses are the first to come to mind. But the most expensive cheeses in the world are not from those countries, but from ranches in the Zasavica Nature Reserve in Serbia. And, as the raw material, "donkey" milk is used instead of milk.
Donkeys bred in the Serbian Zasavica Nature Reserve
Donkey milk is nutritious and contains about 60 times more vitamin C than milk. However, only 2 deciliters of milk can be milked from a donkey per day. For this reason, donkey milk is sold in Europe at a high price of 40 euros per liter (about 4,000 yen in Japanese yen).

Donkey cheese is made from this donkey milk. Since 25 liters of milk are needed to make 1 kg of cheese, it has become the most expensive cheese in the world at 1,000 euros (about 100,000 yen) per kg.

The donkey cheese produced is said to be exported mainly to the United Kingdom and Germany. Cheese is packaged in 50-gram units and sold at high-end European supermarkets.
