Beechwood is exclusive to New Zealand’s South Island. It is unique in that it comes from the sticky-sweet sap of the Beechwood tree.
The colour of beechwood honey is based on seasonality. Honey produced in the spring is auburn in colour and falls under the Light Amber category in the Pfund colour grading system. Beechwood in the autumn is claret in colour and falls under the Amber category on the Pfund colour grading system. It smells earthy and well refined. As the liquid honey spreads across your tongue you will quickly discover warm sugary notes with hints of pine resin and caramelized sugar.
Beechwood is not only a flavourful honey, it also contains minerals and antioxidants due to its raw and unpasteurized nature.
