WINNER – delicious. Produce Awards 2015

The Prickly box (Bursaria spinose) is native to Tasmania, producing small, white, scented flowers during summer. Bees access the Prickly Box nectar on the warm hills in southern Tasmania’s Coal River Valley. Drought can seriously affect the Prickly Box honey flow, and this sought after honey is highly seasonal due to this.

Tasting notes: The honey produced is golden, bright yellow in colour with a flavour ranging from nutty caramel. This honey is less sweet than most, cleansing the palette with little after taste. It is perfect accompanying cheese platters, sweetening tea or coffee and smothered over buttered toast.
