Blue Hills Leatherwood Honey is sourced from the pristine temperate rainforests of the Tarkine (home of the world's cleanest air and water) which means Blue Hills Leatherwood Honey stands out as a truly premium honey. We are the only apiary in the heart of this pristine environment. Only 600-1200 tonnes are produced annually. The Tarkine is the largest single tract of temperate rainforest wilderness left in Australia.
While many Tasmania\'s say that leatherwood 'tastes like the wilderness', the International Slow Food Movement describes it in the following way :
"Leatherwood honey is slightly liquid with uniform crystallisation, a smooth creamy texture and an ochre-yellow colour. The perfume is intense with notes of balsamic scents, which develops quickly into clean fresh notes of citrus fruits and white flowers. The flavour is clean and fresh, very balsamic, with lightly spicy notes in its long finish. Overall, the sensation of eating this honey is very pleasurable: it is creamy, buttery, low in acidity and melts in the mouth."
