To satisfy the demand for year-round, stylish food gifts, Ogilvy’s Honey is launching a honey tasting collection featuring four award-winning artisan honeys, sourced from around the world by honey expert, Shamus Ogilvy. Like all Ogilvy’s honeys, they are 100% pure, rather than blended, and two of the selection are organic.
The innovative packaging is an attractive tubular design, in Ogilvy’s distinctive brand livery, incorporating tasting notes and origin stories of the honeys – all Great Taste Award two and three star winners – stacked inside.
They include: Balkan Linden, an intense aromatic honey with a delicate woody scent from the Southern Danube; Zambezi Plains, an organic tropical blossom honey from the remote Miombo forests of the Zambezi River; organic Himalayan Highlands honey from the virgin forests of the Kashmir Valley; and New Zealand Rainforest honey from the mountains of South Island.
“The vast majority of honeys on sale in the UK are blended, but Ogilvy’s Honey offers only single flower nectar (monofloral), or polyflorals where the bees visit different flowering plants in one local area, explains Shamus Ogilvy, the brand’s founder. “These give these rare honeys distinctive characteristics and flavour intensities ranging from mild to strong. The fine quality of our honeys, makes this collection, priced at £10.95, excellent value as a premium food gift, or will appeal to consumers as a tasting set which delivers an affordable, round-the- world honey journey.”
