A classic taste of the Scottish Highlands - rich and aromatic honey.
A strong Scottish heather honey straight from the hives, simply filtered through muslin cloth and jarred right away without any processing. Choose from 2 sizes of jar - 400g or 1kg.
Made from an exclusive apiary at the Gleneagles Hotel, Falkland Estate and at the Borders, it is rich in taste and very aromatic.
Heather honey has an unusual texture due to its high thixotropic characteristic (meaning it turns into gel when standing still) - stirring the honey transforms its texture to a liquid syrup for easy pouring, just like Manuka honey.
The viscosity of heather honey makes the extraction of the honey from the comb very difficult. That’s why, this honey is extracted by pressure (instead of centrifugation), a labour-intensive process.
The strong unique flavour and consistency of heather honey makes delicious dishes. It amazing with Greek yogurt or with ice-creams and pancakes. It gives coffee a strong smoky taste and can even pair with strong cheese.

RULES FOR USING HONEY IN BAKING
- Honey is very sweet: With the amount to one glass of sugar in the recipe, use the same amount of honey. At the amount of the glass, replace each glass of sugar with 2/3 to 3/4 glass of honey.
- Honey contains water: Using more than one glass of honey instead of sugar, reduce 1/4 cup of liquid for one glass of honey.
- Honey is browning faster: Lower the baking temperature by 5 degrees and check the browning level every 10-15 minutes.
- Honey is slightly sour: For baking, add 1/4 teaspoon baking soda to a glass of honey (if it is not in the recipe). This will reduce acidity and ensure good dough rise.
- The taste of honey: Honey-flavoured light does not significantly affect the taste of baking, but stronger varieties, such as buckwheat honey, can give their specific flavour and aroma.
