Tasmanian Leatherwood Honey . . . a unique and wild honey created in the remote wilderness rainforests of western Tasmania.

The Leatherwood tree possesses a remarkable aroma and flavour, a true distillate of a magnificent ancient landscape, spicy and piquant.

This Leatherwood honey is naturally organic by virtue of the fact of where it is produced. Consider for a moment the following image of this place, an ancient rainforest. Tasmania lies on latitude 42 degrees south, sharing this latitude with only the South island of New Zealand and southern most South America.

For a brief 6 – 8 week period of the year summer comes to this wild place with the annual blooming of the Leatherwood flower, Eucryphia Lucida. These trees bear an abundance of extremely delicate white flowers with a piquant scent. The bees visit these flowers from January to mid March and collect the distinctive aromatic nectar from them.

In order to preserve one of nature most unique gifts, this honey is prepared using a special low temperature preparation technique. In carefully managing the extraction of the honey from the comb and it’s cleaning, both the floral essences and the vitality of the honey is preserved, resulting in an aromatic and naturally organic food.

Because of the low temperatures used in the production, the honey's natural tendency to crystallize is not inhibited and an ultra-fine crystal structure is encouraged. The final product is easy to use resulting in a buttery and spreadable consistency at room temperature making it easy to spoon out and spread.

Suggested Food Pairings:

  • Add to hot beverages from a ‘hot toddy’ to a lemon tea

Farmed by our friends at the Tasmanian Honey Company in Tasmania, Australia.

My favourite is the Tasmanian

with helpful sales staff and at least one who has previous beekeeping knowledge, it's an educational experience shopping at the Main Street Honey Shoppe. My favourite is the Tasmanian Leatherwood Honey and local varieties are tasty, too.

Excellent selection of honey and bee's wax products. Don't forget to get those little honey sticks!
