As the name suggests, the cheese was originally made from the Duke of Wellington’s cows. Now-a-days it is produced by Anne and Andy Wigmore near Reading, England. The unpasteurised Guernsey milk gives a striking golden yellow colour to the cheese. The cheese has a delightful flavour of nutty Cheddar. It is a hard cheese with 45% fat and sold throughout the year.
