What Is Heather Honey?

Did you know that heather honey is made out of the nectar gathered from small purple bell-shaped flowers of a heather plant? Heather’s name comes from the areas it predominantly grows – heath and wetlands. It is also referred to as the ling heather. Other heather species like the bell heather flower a bit earlier and are less common -  and so are used to make honey very rarely. Ling heather or Calluna vulgaris takes its name from the old Greek word meaning a broom. That’s because heather sprigs were often bundled together and used for sweeping.

Heather is a low growing evergreen that is native to Europe and prefers dry, acidic soils. Heather honey is usually dark amber, much darker than caramel, often with an orange or red tint. It also has a pungent smell, which combines woody and fruity notes, along with a rich but delicately sweet taste and a tangy aftertaste. This honey, as long as it is unfiltered and raw, has a plethora of health benefits and it’s especially highly rated for its rich antioxidant properties.

 A lot of connoisseurs love the heather honey, but not necessarily as an alternative for other honey varieties such as standard wildflower honey. The strong taste and thick consistency of this honey make it less suitable to use as a sugar alternative in baking or drinks. It does offer a unique, appealing flavour when utilized as a topping on waffles or ice cream or combined with yoghurt though. If you are looking for the best quality organic and unprocessed heather honey, Sweet Honey Co got you covered! Our products are 100% organic and natural, and we strive to provide each of our customers with the highest quality honey.
