Absolutely pure heather honey from France or Norway. Calluna is a low-growing evergreen native of Europe with a liking for dry acidic soils. Ling heather (calluna vulgaris) honey is considered the "true" heather honey. Ling heather has unique sensory qualities and exhibits a gelatinous property called thixotopism. Normally it is gel-like and firm but it will become temporarily liquid if stirred or agitated.
Heather honey was famously harvested in the Lüneburg heath from the Middle Ages until the 19th century. It declined when the heathlands were reclaimed for crops.
Ling heather honey is reddish orange to dark amber. It has a slightly bitter, tangy, pugent, smoky, mildly sweet taste that persists for a longer time. It has a strong, warm, woody, floral fresh fruit aroma reminiscent of heather flowers.
