Adding to their current 8 listings from their Scottish honeys and preserves range with all 7 of the premium supermarket’s Scottish stores, the 340g jar is their latest addition to their range and builds on the brand’s reputation for producing internationally recognised award-winning products that represent the best of Scottish provenance.

Handcrafted in small batches on their family-run honey farm in Perthshire, Scotland, the thin-cut Seville orange preserve has been created in recognition of the time-honoured tradition of marmalade making in Dundee.

Delicately married with their signature Scottish Heather Honey – traditionally won from wild-flowering purple heather in the Scottish Highlands – it blends the essence of the Spanish orange groves into the late Scottish summer, being described by the Great Taste 2017 panel as having “great honey notes on the nose with a great Seville bitterness and delicate floral quality in the finish”.

Mark Noonan, Managing Director for Heather Hills Farm, commented on the new listing saying:“We are passionate about Scottish provenance and are devoted to both our craft and the honey bee. We are delighted to have won awards for our recipes that pair our signature Scottish Heather Honey with other key ingredients that allow the marriage of flavours to truly shine. Our Scottish Marmalade with Heather Honey is the most recent addition to our Scottish artisan preserve collection which has been much sought after for their inherent quality and flavours. We are thrilled it has been added our current product listings with Waitrose Scotland – it’s been a huge hit with our fans and winning a Great Taste 2017 award is a testament to that.”

Tracey Marshall, Local & Regional Buyer for Waitrose added: “We take pride in celebrating the best of Scottish food and the relationship we have established with Heather Hills Farm in the last seven years. Their honeys and preserves are increasingly recognised for their high quality, provenance and outstanding flavours with sales growing 15 percent in the last year alone.

Their Scottish Heather Cut Comb Honey and Scottish Raspberry Jam have proven particularly popular with our customers with sales up by 35 percent and we are confident their Scottish Marmalade with Heather Honey will continue to add to their success.”
