It's not a place...
TTN,
...but the name of the process used to make it.
Well obviously there is a place called Cheddar, but if you make cheese there you have no monopoly on the name. On the other hand there is a place called Parma, and if you make cheese there you do enjoy protected status. All seems a bit hit and miss. Bizarrely if you make cheese in Stilton you are not allowed to call it Stilton cheese, as Stilton (the place) is outside of the area where cheese is allowed to be so-described.

Bonkers!
