Bermondsey Street Bees ‘Union Collection’ Ling Heather Creamed Somerset Raw Honey 330g

£14.00

A creamed Somerset Ling Heather with a velvety mouthfeel enhancing its classic bittersweet flavours.

DESCRIPTION

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.

TASTING NOTES

Colour: Creamy beige
Nose: Heather blossom, leather, sea breeze
Viscosity: Thick, with fine granulation

PRODUCT INFORMATION

Purists seek out fine monofloral Ling from high- altitude moors, such as the area this honey comes from. Different moors produce differentiated Ling honeys (reflecting local subsoils and minerality) and like fine wines, are easily recognised by experts. Ling has been cherished for centuries for its characteristic bittersweet aromatic flavours, which shine through the creamy mouthfeel of this honey. The art of heather honey, from taking strong hives up to the heather at the end of summer to the unique extraction techniques, is a specialist beekeeping craft… and is often not rewarded by a harvest, making this a particularly rare and special British foodstuff.
