Raw Heather Honey
(£8.50 480 g)
By the middle of August, the moors come to life with vibrant purple heather. Irrepressible in the face of wet and wild weather, heather is an important habitat and food source for ground nesting birds, grazing animals and insects.
A deep amber colour, heather honey has a unique texture as it is thixotropic – meaning it goes runny when you stir it. The taste is just as distinctive as intense and unrefined as the moorlands it comes from. Combines smoky, warm, woody and floral notes in a flavour.
Heather honey benefits for health are connected mainly to its high antioxidant activity. In Great Britain, it is highly-prized by connoisseurs and known as the “Rolls Royce” of honey.
Heather honey is a product of a particularly high nutritional value and is one of the best choices for stimulating the body. Heather honey has the unique property of dropping cholesterol, displays antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties with an emphasis on the urinary and digestive system.
We do not make any medical claims so please seek additional advice from your health care professional on dietary requirements.
Good to know: Crystallisation is a natural process in raw honey that indicates rawness and high quality. If you prefer your honey softer, we would recommend putting the jar on the radiator for a few hours and it will soften up. Alternatively, you could just place it in some hot water and make sure the temperature is not higher than 40 °C.
