Heather honey is produced by bees from the nectar, which they gather from the violet and purple heather flowers.
The nectar is a sweet liquid secreted by the flowers to attract pollinators such as bees and other insects.
Heather (Calluna vulgaris) is also known as lingor Scotch heather.
It's a small plant growing in nutrient-poor soil in open areas, such as wet and dry heaths, fields and moors.
Honey made from the nectar of heather flowers is light brown with a wonderful, distinctive and aromatic taste.
