“Organically produced, cold extracted, unheated, unprocessed, pure raw honey”
We’ve had Miellerie on our shelves for a long time, but it’s such a wonderful product that we feel it deserves a piece of the spotlight.
Miellerie’s Leatherwood honey
Ginat is uncompromising when it comes to the integrity and purity of his honey. Unlike most supermarket honeys- which are heated to maximise their shelf life and profitability- Miellerie honey is produced by cold extraction, a labour of love which requires patience and dedication. This process preserves the natural aroma, taste, texture and colour of the honey, along with its vitalising, health-giving qualities. It’s honey to be savoured as slowly and thoughtfully as it was crafted, capable of turning a simple piece of buttered toast into a piece of indulgence. And because it’s so beautifully packaged, Miellerie honey makes a lovely gift.
Each of the five honeys in the Miellerie range are distinctly characterised by the nectars of the local flora they are derived from but they all share a smooth, rich body and crystallised texture which dissolves on the tongue. At Wholefoods House we try to keep stock of all five but be warned: they walk out the door!
Leatherwood: Uniquely and deliciously Tasmanian honey with an indulgently creamy taste and texture. A personal favourite.
Lake Pedder’s Nectar: A complex and caramelly tasting honey echoed by its dark appearance.
Prickly Box: Warm, butterscotch flavours; coloured accordingly.
Blue Gum: Originating from the nectar of Tasmania’s floral emblem, this honey has a delicate and seductively buttery aroma and taste.
Tea Tree (Manuka): Rich in natural antibodies, this is an amber hued honey textured with fine crystals and a characteristic fragrance. It was once described to me as “the best honey I have ever tasted”. What more to say?
