More than 14,200 food and drink entries from 110 countries across the world were put to the test by Great Taste, the world’s largest food and drink accreditation scheme based entirely on taste, to come up with the best of the best.

The Scottish Heather Comb Honey is only available in limited supply after each heather honey harvest season which occurs at the end of November of each year. It was described as having “a wonderful deep rich caramel edge that lingers on the palate beautifully” and suggesting flavours of “lavender and subtle fruit alongside pure heather loveliness”.

The Scottish Heather Comb Honey enthralled the Great Taste judges with its “rich golden colour, and remarkably floral aroma with the character of sweet alyssum”. A spokes person for the awards said it made an impression at every stage of the blind-tasted judging process across the 90 days.
