Leatherwood Honey – Tasmania – 750g
Leatherwood honey is the honey bees produce from the nectar of the Leatherwood plants’ flower. The Leatherwood plant (Eucryphia lucida) is endemic to Tasmania, thus you will only find true Tasmanian leatherwood honey that is produced in Tasmania.
Some describe the taste of Leatherwood honey like its wilderness. We agree with this description, but also resonate with the International Slow Food Movements description below:
‘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’.
