Heather Honey is a favourite amongst honey connoisseurs. With its strong taste, Heather Honey stands out from other honeys. It is as strong as Chesnut honey and particularly sought after by northern Europeans. A large percentage of the Heather Honey produced in France is exported despite irregular harvest conditions. The gelatinous consistency makes it particularly difficult to extract. It requires the use of a needle to stir the honey before it is extracted.
