SCOTTISH BLOSSOM HONEY

£6.99

Raw, unpasteurised and unfiltered Scottish artisan polyfloral light, soft-set honey has a mild palate and velvety, melt-in-the-mouth texture, ending with a long, sweet tangy finish bursting with fruit. 

Traditionally gathered from soft fruit, rape and spring blossoms in Perthshire between April and June of each year. The short production season defines the unique palate as dictated by its terroir and is not heated over the normal temperature of the hive to retain its natural goodness and superior flavour.
Farmed, collected and extracted using traditional methods and produced in small batches and bottled and labelled by hand. Each sale goes towards the survival of the bee and their essential work in pollination.
In the spring of each year, the hives are put on the famous soft fruit farms of the local Perthshire area, where honey bees have been pollinating blossoms for over 60 years. Pollination is essential in producing the perfect berry - in size, shape, colour, texture and flavour. In turn, our bees gather the nectar to produce our Scottish Blossom Honey.

Established in 1945, Heather Hills Farm is a traditional family-run honey farm based in the Highlands of Perthshire - the heartland of Scotland. They specialise in a selection of 100% pure, raw, monofloral and polyfloral honeys and handmade preserves. Starting off with just one hive in 1945, they now have 1300 hives across Perthshire and Deeside - the most beautiful and unpolluted parts of the UK. This relatively small-scale ensures their hives are regularly and well spaced out in small batches by zones. This means that the bees have plenty of opportunity to roam - up to a 5 mile radius of each hive - giving a superior quality product. A bigger producer would normally cram around 100 hives into the same space thus reducing the quality of the product. In an age of mass production and bulk processing, their honey is collected and extracted using traditional methods to ensure that the enzymes, protein and natural goodness of their honey stays within it and are not destroyed during the harvesting, separating or bottling processes. This produces artisan, raw honey of a far superior quality and distinctive flavour which retain their natural benefits. In wine terms, their award-winning Scottish Heather Honey is the Champagne of Honeys due to the geographical location of their hives, the terrain and the climate.
