Overview: Our Raw Heather Honey is a robust complex honey. It offers the aroma fallen leaves in Autumn in addition to wild mushrooms. Delicately foraged from hardy heather plants that decorate the rocky valleys of Northern Spain, this honey excites the taste buds with its salty notes and slightly bitter aftertaste. Lovely on a slice of warm toast or in a bowl of warm porridge, it compliments all culinary delights with its presence. Slightly varying in taste, colour and texture from season to season, it is raw, natural and unpasteurised, as nature intended.
