Edinburgh Spring Blossom Honey

Our spring honey is a multifloral Honey deriving from spring wildflowers, hedgerows and tree blossoms; the most important of which are blossoms of wild cherry (Prunus avium), hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna), sycamore (Acer pseudoplatanus) , and sweet chestnut (Castanea sativa).

Initial sweetness quickly gives over to the savoury perception of salt, smoky and woody aromatic notes

The flavour from the chestnut delivers great depth and complexity and the woodiness is a delight. 

We liked the smoothness and gentle nature and the length of the finish 

A beautifully loose and clear honey with a strong alpine aroma. There is pleasing complexity of flavour- so nutty and floral. Woody elements come through but not overpoweringly so. Finishes on creamy nuttiness. A subtle honey but with so much to say. 

Great Taste Award 2023

“A golden amber Honey with a medium viscosity. The woody notes of chestnut blend with the florals and an oily back note. The flavour is gentle following the powerful aroma, with each of the notes found in tasting and the bitterness coming through at the end to leave a deep, long flavour”

Edinburgh Summer Blossom Honey

A bright, minty, lime zest aroma, typical of lime tree (Tilia) blossom, bees also foraging on rosebay willowherb (Chamaenerion angustifolium), blackberry (Rubus fruticosus), borage (Borago officinalis), phacelia (Phacelia tanacetifolia), buddleia (Buddleja davidii), and many other wild flowers.

As William Blake wrote ” To see a world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.” The taste of lime honey is a taste of eternity, in every spoonful, a taste of heaven

“This is a lovely clear Honey with a beautiful viscosity. The orange scent is bright and vibrant with background floral notes. The silky texture slides over the palate, with the citrusy notes merging with the floral in a long, slow finish. Sunshine in a jar and a joy to taste”

Soft-Set Longniddry Rapeseed and Wildflower Honey

One of our sweetest Honey varieties. The butter-like texture and refreshing feeling is a delight to experience on the tongue. The initial sweetness and subtle vegetal aroma is met with joyful fruity end notes.

Our spring blossom is mainly rapeseed (Brassica Napus) with additional contributions deriving from nearby wild cherry (Prunus avium) and field beans (Vicia faba).

Our rapeseed Honey is an exceptional example on the world stage; unique for not having the unpleasant sauerkraut aroma common in continental Europe and North America.

“A dense, chewy honey with a luxurious melting mouthfeel. The creamy texture is to be applauded. There were faint cherry notes on the nose. The honey melts slowly on the tongue leaving definite fruity, cherry notes right at the end. How fascinating! This honey would also be very versatile, being great as a spreading honey but also useful in dressings or, because of its colour, to sweeten pale sweetmeats and desserts. We enjoy it a lot!”
