'Veiled in this fragile filigree of wax is the essence of sunshine, golden and limpid... Honey, even more than wine, is a reflection of place...
(it) is the flower transmuted, its scent and beauty transformed into aroma and taste'
Honey from Flower to Table, 2002, Stephanie Rosenbaum

Red Bloodwood


An incredibly complex and compelling honey, indeed, one of the most detailed, intriguing and distinct tasting yet. The texture is magnificent, rich, creamy and sticky with a trail of pleasing, lightly silty grip through the ultra-lingering finish. Flavours are lush and luxurious, deep and satisfying, warming almost and, importantly, distinctly nutty-savoury under the caramel and sweet/dried citrus primary flavours. A wealth of indulgent pleasure here. A ‘wow’ honey of highest calibre.

Colour: Medium-gold, hazy-cloudy, flecked
Texture: Ultra creamy/sticky textured, silty finish
Aromas: Toffee, warmed hazelnuts, sandalwood, dried roses, sugared almonds, eucalyptus
Flavours: Crème caramel, almond, candied orange, ginger, toasted hazelnuts, cinnamon

I’ve been veggie most of my life and lived an ethical vegan lifestyle the past few years but I always thought I should be eating Honey. I’ve searched high and low so thank goodness for you guys! Thanks for caring about the bees :)

This is the second time ordering your honey and just like the first time I am thoroughly enjoying it. It's almost impossible to find honey nowadays similar to how you make yours. Continue doing what your doing and hopefully others follow for the sake of everyone and everything on this planet.

We saw you today at the sustainable expo with Kylie Kwong and were very impressed. Keep up the good work and thank you for going the extra mile to bring us city folk the goodness as it should be.

I am totally hooked to your honey after purchasing some from the Carrington Cellars in Katoomba. Kind regards and thank you for producing such wonderful product

You have the best looking honey jars - the jar and the label together are just outstanding. You have a beautiful web page too!

I purchased some of your honey at a food event at Centennial Park some time ago and loved it. I would love to share the honey with my family and friends and was thinking about giving a 150g jar to each of our wedding guests - like bonbonerie, only it would be far more special than any sugar coated almonds.

Our Gold Label range incorporates incredibly rare, seasonal varieties in small quantities produced from 100% natural comb in bee-friendly Warré hives in the Central Tablelands and Blue Mountains of NSW, Australia.

Red Bloodwood is a unique honey produced in the epic sandstone forests of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area.

In late summer and into Autumn, the Red Bloodwood tree (Corymbia gummifera) bursts into flower, covering the wilderness canopy with creamy blossoms. Flowering once every 2 to 4 years, the honey produced is a true terroir honey, capturing the essence of the Blue Mountains.

It has a rich, complex flavour, the sweetness complemented by deep resinous notes (owing to the 'blood' or kino/resin produced in abundance by the tree which gives the tree its common name). The amber colour and unique texture make for a beautiful, wild honey produced in a wild landscape.

Red Bloodwood is defined by beekeepers as a ‘short budder’ in that it sets its buds in the month before flowering, (unlike many other Eucalypts, Corymbia’s and Angophora’s that set bud one year or more before flowering). Therefore, blossom is highly influenced by environmental conditions immediately preceding and during flowering.

In recent years, changes to the climate patterns in the region have resulted in periods of very high rainfall during flowering, affecting the honeyflow and making this honey a rarity.

As our Wild honey is genuinely cold pressed from virgin comb it may be crystallised in the jar. Cold pressed honey often has a cloudy or opaque appearance and soft, thick, even texture with finely grained crystals.

Storage Instructions and Important Information

Store in a cool, dry and dark place. Best temperature range for storage and serving is between 15 and 25°C.

Our Wild Honey is bottled in glass jars and all orders are sent with Australia Post's ‘special wine order - fragile’ tape attached, which notifies Australia Post employees to carefully handle the parcel. We also take great care in packaging the product securely for transit.

Please note: As our honey is seasonal, wild, harvested from small apiaries, and bottled in micro batches, natural variation in colour will occur from batch to batch. The honey you receive may be a slightly different colour from that pictured above but is the same variety. We do not overheat, filter or homogenise our honey to make every jar uniform in colour and texture as that damages the nutritional integrity of this super food.
