Try making your own great tasting heather ale with the free recipe below! Heather flowers are a traditional remedy in Swedish herbal medicine. A low mound of handsome greenery topped by multiple spikes of colored flowers, heathers are native to Ireland, Scandinavia, Russia, and northern North America, but are especially synonymous with Scotland and its history and lore. The native Picts were renowned for their fierceness in battle and their heather ale, which was made without he addition of malt and hops (as they don't grow in Scotland), instead relying on the heather's nectar for flavor and to help with the fermentation. In Scotland, white heather is considered good luck, no doubt due in part to its scarcity, much in the same way that a 4-leaf clover is in Celtic mythology.

The heather is a woody and bushy evergreen shrub with multiple branching stems. It has miniature leaves that are like needles. They are borne on the twigs of the plant. The flowers of the heather are bell-shaped and are purple to pink in color, but white flowers do appear occasionally. They typically bloom in late summer. They are arranged in a multiple spike formation and are quite impressive when seen from afar. Due to the attractiveness of its flowers, heathers are often used as a decorative and ornamental plant, and a landscaping complement.

Also known by its scientific name of calluna vulgaris, the heather is found in abundance in Scotland, Ireland, the Scandinavian countries, Russia and North America.

The heather is a plant whose different parts are used for different applications. The branches are often used as straw for brooms while the leaves are used as flavoring agent for beer and tea. The heather bark is used for tanning while the flowers contain nectar.

The active constituents of heather are various types of quercetin (including dihydroxychromone), tannin and flavonoids. To make heather tea, place about a handful of finely-chopped heather (flowers, leaves) into a mug of boiling water. Let the mix stand for about 10 to 15 minutes, then strain and drink. Heather tea is usually taken 3 times per day but is not recommended for prolonged use as its high tannin content may contribute to liver damage.
