Perfecting Honeycomb is a rite of passage for all chocolatiers, every one of us has our own style and recipe - the key to mine is using real Scottish honey and making it in small batches to perfect the flavour, texture and just as importantly, using exceptional and ethical chocolate to coat it in.
Whilst making my small batches, I have decided to showcase a different Scottish honey producer for each batch.
Batch No. 9 - Blacklaw Heather Honey
This batch finds us working with small scale honey producers Stephen and Aimie. The pair are hobby beekeepers and make this honey locally with the bees foraging heather in the Angus glens. Stephen works with the bees and tends to 5 hives, he has been working with his bees for 8 years and the pair sell any surplus honey left over from harvest. We are very excited to be working with such local makers for our 9th batch of delicious honeycomb!
Batch No.10 - Kin Bees - also available in caramelised white chocolate
Our festive Scottish honey producer takes us back to one of our favourite producers - a company called Kin apiaries run by Award winning beekeeper Gael Wilkinson.
Gael has a real love for her bees and manages 31 hives over four sites across West Fife and her honey won first prize at the 2022 Royal Highland Show and went on to win a GREAT Taste star this year!
We were lucky to visit Gael at one of her top secret apiaries and we spent the morning peering into her bee hives and learning all about the wonderful bees.
We learned the fun fact that bees in the summer live for six weeks whereas bees in the winter can live for up to six months! The summer bees only actually fly in the last two weeks of their lives. Almost all of the male bees are all kicked out and killed off over the winter to leave the females to keep the hive ticking over, although with the current global warming crisis there is a huge shift in the bees winter and summer activity with bees still flying and foraging well into the winter months.
