Australia Day is originally focused on the First Fleet from Britain landing in Sydney Cove. For many people, Australia Day eventually became the day to reflect, respect and celebrate its nation, people and achievements. We like to celebrate Australia Day with our Australian Manuka Honey! 🎉Just like it’s New Zealand counterpart, Australian Manuka Honey is produced by the bees from the nectar of the Manuka Tree. Australia is known to have 84 of the 87 Leptospermum species, including the Leptospermum Scoparium species in NZ. This is the only honey that exhibits non-peroxide activity due to the MG component only present at high levels in Manuka Honey. This makes honey unique because of its antimicrobial and nutritional properties.
Australian Manuka has a slightly different flavor due to the variations of the Manuka plants and the region of Australia that it's sourced from. Many say Australian Manuka has more eucalyptus notes than Manuka sourced from New Zealand, while others get stronger molasses notes.
Due to many varying factors including less regulation on testing and a competitive spirit, Australian Manuka also comes in at a lower price point. But don't worry about the testing regulations - at PRI we batch test ALL of our Manuka Honey and provide results upon request. Just send in your batch number!
