Both of our ‘bests’ come together in a perfect marriage. Our Manuka Leatherwood Blend brings these prized honeys together creating a full-bodied flavour that is both earthy and spicy. This special honey is harvested then skilfully blended by second generation apiarist, Robert Charles and his small team.
MANUKA: The manuka bush Leptospermum scoparium is found in remote parts of Tasmania and New Zealand. Manuka honey has long been reputed for its antibacterial properties. Indeed, in 2006, the naturally occurring compound, Methylglyoxal, was identified as the dominant antibacterial constituent of manuka honey. Our family takes great care to ensure the purity of our manuka honey.
LEATHERWOOD: The wild rainforests of Tasmania are the only place in the world where the rare leatherwood tree (Eucryphia lucida) grows. Since 1955, our family has had the privilege of sourcing this highly sought after honey from the heart of the Tarkine wilderness, an area known for its ancient forests and the world’s cleanest air and water.
The strong, earthy flavour of manuka, marries well with the leatherwood’s spicy, “rainforest” flavours.
Our process of cold extraction ensures that this unique blend retains all of the flavours and aromas of the wilderness: it’s pure, wild honey.
