The World's hidden find: The Tasmanian Leatherwood Honey

One of the finest and rarest honey in the world, Tasmanian Leatherwood Honey has been prized by experts for over 100 years for its piquant flavour and unique aroma. 

Tasmania is the only source of Leatherwood Honey on Earth. Leatherwood is harvested in a pristine and mostly untouched environment of Tasmania. About 70 percent of Tasmania’s honey is sourced from Leatherwood grown solely in the rainforests of the southern western areas of the State of which many are listed as World Heritage sites. In fact, Tasmania is the only State where beekeepers have unlimited access to these World Heritage areas.  Some beekeepers spend weeks with their bees, moving their hives around, moving their hives around to ensure the bees have easy access to the flowers.

The majestic leatherwood tree (Eucryphia lucida), a species 65 million years old, only grows on Tasmania island, and only in relatively small, naturally selected pockets of native forest in the wild west. It is thus hardly surprising that the iconic and delicious honey it yields is considered by many honey connoisseurs the world's best.

At the Tasmania Honey Company, honeycombs are only processed three weeks after they are collected. This is to ensure that the best honey is packed for consumers before it leaves the factory. Unlike most mass produced honey, the temperature of our honey has been carefully maintained below 45 degrees in order to preserve its full flavor, aroma and all of the health benefits. 
  
Leatherwood honey has been proven to be high in antioxidants and naturally rich in vitamin B and minerals. As a result, Leatherwood honey has plenty of health benefits.  It helps to boost the immune system, bolster energy, heal wounds and ease indigestion.

With a unique aroma unlike other varietals, this is a varietal with distinct character. This honey has a robust and pleasant flavor, a smooth texture that melts in the mouth and a full bodied finish with notes of wood and spice. The depth of its flavor makes it a fabulous spread on bread and a heavenly accompaniment when paired with sharp cheeses. This is truly the caviar of honeys and certainly one not to be missed.
 
As Mr. Julian Wolfhagen, the founder of the Tasmanian Honey Company and the president of the Tasmanian Beekeepers Association once said, “When you try some (Leatherwood), close your eyes and think of the Tasmanian wilderness.You'll be amazed.”
