High Country Honey is sourced from our own beehives in the remote mountains near Queenstown. The honey bees collect it from a variety of mountain flowers,including some of the New Zealand's native plants, which creates this honey with a unique flavor and a wonderful fragrance.
Kawarau Gorge Honey is sourced from our own beehives in the wild Karawau Gorge between Gibbston Valley and Cromwell. In summer, the Kawarau Gorge produces a wonderful array of flowers, resulting in a beautiful honey with a mild floral taste.
The thyme grows in a variety of places, from the Kawarua gorge through Gibbston valley. It tends to grow on the steep sides of hills and mountains.
The natural range for wild thyme is the Mediterranean region. During the New Zealand gold rush of the the late 1800s, Thyme was brought to the area by miners for culinary purposes. It has a very high antioxidant rating, higher than other honeys of the world.
The flavour of Thyme honey is strong and pungently herbal.
