Raw Organic Heather Honey - 960g
Raw organic Heather is an amazingly deep tasting shrub honey. It comes from the bees feeding on the low lying heather shrubs found on the mountainous terrain in Asturias. Despite not coming from a tree, heather honey has similar properties to a tree honey, namely its potent taste and dark colour.
More On Flavour: The foretaste of this honey starts with a very strong earthy flavour with a hint of iron leading quickly into a beautiful, dark and fruity main flavour very reminiscent of strong figs and dried red fruits like plums. It has a flavour that does not die but stays in the back of the mouth. Not for the faint hearted or if you prefer milder honeys!
Where does the honey come from? This variety of organic heather honey comes from Asturias, a largely untouched, wild and diverse region in the north of Spain. Luisa's hives are well away from sources of pollution in the national parks.
Who produces this honey? This honey comes from Luisa and her daughter Olaya. She is a beekeeper with a passion for producing raw honey of the very highest quality - with a lot attention to detail. Her honeys have a full, rich flavour typical of many products from the region. Most of her products are certified as organic.
Please know that raw honey does crystalise and this is a natural process that occurs mainly due to the natural glucose in raw honey. For more information on why honey sets visit this article and for a more scientific explanation go to wikipedia.
