Best of the best! Manuka Leatherwood Honey Premium (1kg,tub) by Blue Hills Honey. 

Both of our ‘bests’ come together in a perfect marriage. This natural Manuka Leatherwood Blend brings these prized honeys together creating a full-bodied flavour that is both earthy and spicy.

Tasmanian Honey at its best. GMO Free and naturally produced and harvested.

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.

“Evidence suggests that L. scoparium originated in Australia before the onset of the Miocene aridity, and dispersed relatively recently from eastern Australia to New Zealand.”

While processed honey, including that derived from the Manuka bush, has been produced in Tasmania since European bees were introduced here in the early 1830s, there is also documented evidence back to 1884 for the term ‘Manuka’ being produced in Tasmania.

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, and its Methylglyoxal content has been measured and labelled on this jar.

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.

Enjoyed for its eating quality as well as its other benefits, Manuka honey has a strong, earthy flavour, whilst the leatherwood adds a tang to the overall tone.

This honey is raw - meaning it has been cold extracted, unprocessed, unheated, retaining all its nutrients, enzymes, vitamins, minerals and anti-bacterial properties.

Raw honey is more crystalline and may develop a natural candied, sugar appearance over time and during colder weather. Organic raw honey that is more liquid and runny is newly extracted and will settle over time to become more thick and crystalline. Conventional non-organic, non-raw honey has been heated at higher temperatures for long periods of time during their processing and extraction, destroying beneficial nutrients.

Enjoy: Straight from the tub, or in a favourite lemon and honey drink.
To soften honey, leave a portion in a bowl in a pan of warm water. Do not overheat, so to maximise honey's therapeutic properties.
