Once you taste this honey, you'll agree this is the gold standard of honey. Only the Highlands of Scotland has heather covered hills that stretch for miles, keeping the bees busy for months. It's the heather that gives this honey its distinctive character, and the bees do the rest. Struan Apiaries is known by Scots as the best, now you can enjoy it too in this 8 oz jar. Named by Mimi Sheraton as one of the 1000 foods to eat before you die.
Ingredients: pure heather honey.
Struan Apiaries, started in 1978 by Hamish Robertson, has evolved from a hobby to a thriving business. Hamish, with his wife Joan and his sons Martin and Nigel, now collect between 10 and 30 tons of honey every year from over 700 hives distributed throughout the Highlands of Scotland. The bees forage a wide range of flowers and blossoms offering the consumer an unrivalled selection of honey types. Winner of many awards for excellence in products, packaging and flavor, Struan is considered the Rolls Royce of honey today.
Hamish is getting on in years now, but he still sometimes answers the phone or greets you with a smile when you drive in the road that separates his home from the production facility. He smiles when he claims to be the biggest UK employer - after all he has over a million worker bees!
