Ling Heather is held to be the greatest of all Britain’s native honeys and this is a classic example of prized high-altitude Ling, from hives taken up to the Somerset moors at the end of summer. This particular crop has been creamed, a traditional process which breaks up Ling’s large crystalline structure into a fine textured honey with a creamy appearance. The production of Ling heather honey has been carried on through centuries and requires specialist management of both the hives and the extraction process.
