Raw Organic Heather Honey - 22kg


Alvaro's raw organic heather honey has a lovely, almost savoury aroma to it, similar in some ways to the sweetness of roasted red peppers - toasty and dark with a sourness that rounds out the normal sweetness of honey.  It's very much like blackstrap molasses in this way.

The foretaste of this honey starts with a very brief hint of iron leading quickly into a beautiful, dark and fruity main flavour very reminiscent of strong figs and dried red fruits like plums.  Has been likened to warm blackberry and blackcurrant jam, and finishes by leaving a refreshing sourness on the back of the tongue.

Colour: This honey is very dark - almost opaque. Light barely makes it through a 1kg jar, showing just a tiny bit of dark red through the blackness.

Where does the honey come from? This variety of heather honey comes from Rioja in Spain, a largely untouched, wild and diverse region in central to north Spain. The soil here is very rich and his hives are in a series of wild and mountainous national parks.

Who produces this honey? This variety comes from Alvaro, a beekeeper with a passion for producing raw honey of the very highest quality.  His honeys have a full, rich flavour typical of many products from the region.

What about the tree the honey comes from? The heather shrub, also known as brezo in Spanish, is a small mountain-hugging evergreen which produces many flowers and loves acidic soils.

Common Uses: Heather honey is particularly good to use in recipes such as Greek yoghurt, ice creams, glazes for meats and to add a unique zing and depth to a dish.

Heather Honey Facts: This particular type of heather honey comes from the plants erica vagans and erica cinerea. Heather has 2 main genus, calluna (also known as ling) and erica or ericaceae, both are noted for being some of the most antibacterial and flavoursome honeys you can obtain.

Lovely as usual. Personally haven't had any honey from The Raw Honey shop that I didn't like. This heather honey is a delight, nothing quirky just straightforward, tasty.

Honey review

My review to my recent purchase, and just to add I’ve ordered from this coming before, is that is exceptional in taste and quality, just fantastic, it’s authentic raw and it retains in the honey what Mother Nature intended it to be like, this honey should be in all the major supermarkets as the masses of people our missing out. Just brilliant!!!!
