As far as we can determine, the Leatherwood plant that supplies our honey grows only in Tasmania. The Leatherwood plant has very ancient origins, remaining after the super continent Gondwana split apart more than 60 million years ago. A truly unique mono-floral honey from a very unique place.
Our Leatherwood Honey has a bold presence, creating a distinct flavour profile when eating, baking, or preparing a glaze or dressing.
Blue Hills Leatherwood is gathered by bees in the protected Tarkine Wilderness, a pristine temperate rain forest in Northwest Tasmania, home of the world’s cleanest air and water.
Many people believe that just like Manuka honey, Leatherwood honey also has medicinal properties. Based on research (RIRDC Publication No 05/040 RIRDC Project No UQ-102A) and random sampling, it is noted that Leatherwood has naturally high antibacterial activity, ranges from active 10.6 TA to around 15 TA, therapeutically beneficial. Currently ongoing research and further testing is still being carried out.
All Blue Hills honeys are “cold extracted”, ensuring all of the natural components of the honey are retained. For more information please see: Blue Hills – Their Other Honeys
