Batch No. 12 - Wanneroo Botanical (Sold out)
Spring has sprung for 2017 and this honey is the perfect celebration of the new season. The bee's hives for this unique batch were situated in the bushland at the back of Wanneroo's iconic Botanic Gardens and Mini Golf - one of the largest and most historic privately owned gardens in Western Australia.
This batch, collected in October 2017 is the result of a collection of nectars primarily from Australian natives including Marri, Jarrah and Banksia which were in the immediate vicinity of the hives. The urban oasis that is the botanic gardens also supplied a smorgasboard of nectars from the enticing exotic plants.
The Marri (Corymbia Calophylla) is a type of Eucalypt that produces delicate cream flowers; Jarrah (Eucalyptus Marginata), also from the Eucalyptus family, produces similar delicate flowers whose nectar is reknown for producing honey with healing properties; and the Banksia tree (Menziesii) which vastly populates the Wanneroo area with it's candle shaped orange flowers, gives the honey a smooth and toffee-like taste.
This honey ticks all of the boxes. It is the thickest honey we have ever had! It is such a smooth caramelly honey that transplants you to a warm and cosy place. The full flavour palate contains notes of caramel and fig with a hint of woody flavour - as if the honey were a wine aged in a wooden barrel.
Friend of Nectar Honey Paul was harvester and custodian of the Wanneroo Botanical hives. Enjoy.
