Our gourmet pure heather honey comes from the finest heather moors, across the UK
This exquisite and sought after honey is dark amber in colour, highly aromatic with slight bitter, tangy and smoky notes. It has a strong distinctive woody, warm, floral, fresh fruit aroma reminiscent of heather flowers. It works really well with yogurt, fruit and with salty cheeses.
UK heather honey is considered true “heather honey”. The heather ours bees use to make it is a low growing evergreen native of Europe with a liking for dry acidic soils.
UK heather honey has unique sensory qualities and exhibits a gelatinous property called thixotopism. Normally it is gel-like and firm, but it will become temporarily liquid if stirred or agitated.
A sign of purity is the presence of small air bubbles trapped in the gel-like honey (a result of pressing to extract the honey), and while it has a bright appearance, it will not be clear.
British heather dominates the moors across the UK and is also found in the uplands of Ireland. These areas account for about 75% of open heather moorland. Heather grows on moorlands or dry heathlands which are characterised as open areas of land with few trees, at altitudes up to 300 metres.
