With 400 hives covering 100 square miles of Dumfries & Galloway in Scotland, John Mellis has become known as one of Scotland’s most successful bee farmers, with his honey in great demand for it’s unique flavor. The distinctive flavor of his honey is down to the countryside the hives are positioned in, with trees, wild flowers and heather providing the nectar the bees need. John Mellis works hard at achieving such distinctive flavors in his honey, actually transporting hives throughout the season to the most interesting flower sources to save the bees making long flights in search of their precious nectar! The two honeys we supply are set honeys (as opposed to runny honey). Set honey is made in a high speed centrifuge. Some separation may occur over time.
