Honey collected around Alice Springs and along desert water courses of Central Australia.
W.D. Kekwick was known for his travels through the Australian outback as second in command on J.M. Stuart’s exploration journeys. His last exploration appointment was with W.C. Goss as collector of botanic and natural history specimens.
Anecdotal evidence suggests that Mr. Kekwick tasted some of the collected samplings and after tasting honey he reportedly stated: “Real men would prefer Desert Bloodwood while ladies might take kindly to River Red Gum.”
Honey from Desert Bloodwood Corymbia opaca is collected from isolated desert locations while River Red Gum Eucalyptus camaldulensis is found along dry water courses.
We are proud to offer both varieties including a sampling collected in and around the town of Alice Springs. The connoisseur’s choice lives on in our desert honey collection available in various quantities raw and unheated, and also as wild honey comb if requested.
