Leatherwood Honey’s distinct spicy flavour has given it a reputation of a fine gourmet product. Leatherwood honey is, as its name suggests the honey that bees produce from the nectar of the Leatherwood (Eucryphia lucida) plants’ flower. The Leatherwood plant is endemic to Tasmania and is found in the wetter forest regions throughout the Western portion of the state. Leatherwood is the single most important nectar plant in Tasmania accounting for about 70% of all honey produced. Unblended Leatherwood honey has a unique taste and smell which is quite different from blended honey.
