Our heather honey for sale in ross-shire is predominantly from ling heather, its reddish/orange to dark amber in colour. It has a slightly bitter, tangy, pungent, smoky, mildly sweet taste that persists for a long time. It has a strong distinctive woody, warm, floral, fresh fruit aroma reminiscent of heather flowers.
heather honey has unique qualities and is very jelly like and will not run extracting is a problem because the honey will not spin out of the combs in the normal way. Ling is thixotropic which means that it is normally gel-like and firm. It will become temporarily liquid if stirred or agitated.
