This delicious comb honey comes from the hives set in the ancient orchard at Megginch Castle, home of the Drummond-Herdman family.
The honey came in during the height of summer and, from its flavour, is a mix of a wide range of wildflowers with perhaps clover as the most prevalent. Pale summer blossoms such as this have a delicate flowery flavour.
The comb honey will remain delicious for a long time even if the honey continues to set, rapidly around the edge of the comb and in the box and more slowly inside the sealed cells. We enjoy it spread on warm toast or on top of hot porridge, wax and all! It is a similar honey to that from Tarland, offered earlier this year.
