Ogilvy’s, one of our favourite food producers at SLOAN!, have just launched three exciting new flavours of raw British honey to join their Raw Orchard Honey which we reviewed on SLOAN! Magazine a few months ago. The new Ogilvy’s honeys are all raw, all delicious and all naturally blended by bees! Each honey has an amazing taste and depth of flavour influenced by the natural variety of trees and plants found in the British countryside. The taste and aroma are influenced by the nectar source. Each honey has it’s own distinctive taste, texture, flavour and colour. The food source the bees feed on is reflected in the taste of the honey.
Raw honey undergoes minimum processing, has been cold extracted and lightly filtered preserving the natural beneficial qualities. Raw honey is rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Raw honey is a natural energy source and a natural sweetener.

From gardens and hedgerows in the heart of England, Ogilvy’s bring you a cold-pressed light refreshing regional honey collected from the blossom of chestnut and lime trees and a variety of wild flowers, hedgerows and English gardens.
