Miellerie means "the house of honey" in French. This honey is produced by Yves Ginat, a Frenchman now living in Tasmania. Yves began keeping bees as a young boy in France. He has brought his techniques with him, and says of his honey, "it is a subtle marriage of French tradition and Tasmanian flowers."
Miellerie honey is unprocessed and unheated, thus maintaining the honey's optimum natural aroma, health qualities, and characteristic crystals. Each of the honeys in the Miellerie range are crystallised, with a smooth, velvety texture that melts in your mouth!
Blue Gum - Madame Blue Gum opens her branches as a crown of blossom from October to December, from seaside to hill top. She is an elder, a sage, and will yield in her own rhythm of 5, 7, or 9 years; Tasmania’s flower emblem.
Each flower like a little sun, she gives to us; each flower a larder of nectar, she gives to the bees. Her honey is soft and delicate in perfume, attracting the swift parrot and bees to share her crown to live. We have sheltered within the rooted hollows of her trunk, between the earth and cosmos, surrounded by the music of dripping nectar.
