Hilltop Honey is buzzing to be bringing its very first Manuka Honey to the UK market in soft set format. Officially launching on Monday 16th April, the honey will be available in 250g jars in varying strengths (5+, 10+, 15+). Hilltop Honey Manuka has been carefully sourced and tested from the best New Zealand beekeepers to certify authenticity.
Unlike all the other honeys of the world, Manuka Honey is only being produced in New Zealand and is made from bees pollinating the Manuka bush which is native to the country. With only 1,700 tonnes produced each year at maximum capacity, this monofloral honey is one of the most premium, luxurious, and sought-after honeys and is in huge demand for its exceptional taste as well as nutritional and health attributes.
Just like how the Kiwi’s intended it to be, Hilltop Honey will be serving its new Manuka Honey in soft set form. Unlike other British honey producers, who sell Manuka in runny form, Hilltop Honey has aspired to be different, bringing its Manuka Honey to the UK in its original soft set state – just like how New Zealanders enjoy it!
Available as soft set makes it the perfect texture for spreading on toast, adding to smoothies or simply enjoying a large spoonful as a tasty treat! Characterised by its dark amber colour and strong flavour of earthy, herbaceous, and floral notes, Hilltop Honey Manuka is rich, luscious, bold and complex in flavour and really tantalises your taste buds. It will most definitely leave you craving that extra spoonful!
What makes Manuka honey so unique?
Manuka honey has a higher concentration of non-peroxide activity (NPA) compared to other honeys. NPA is an antibacterial property found in all honey but what sets Manuka apart is its higher concentration providing medical, healing and antibacterial properties – it’s often used to treat wounds and infections.
Scott Davies, Managing Director of Hilltop Honey, commented; “Hilltop Honey has always hoped to bring our customers a top-quality Manuka honey in its most original state. We are now incredibly proud of this product – its exceptional in taste, texture and character and we’re sure you’ll love it.”
He adds; “Manuka Honey is regarded as one of the most unique and beneficial forms of honey in the world. Not only does it taste good, but Manuka honey is praised for its nutritional and health benefits – it has been used to help cure acne, to treat burns, wounds and ulcers as well as helping sore throats and immunity.”
“Our favourite little insects forage the manuka bush native to New Zealand, to bring you this dark, herbal, amber honey.” Says Scott. “We measure our honey using the Non-Peroxide Activity (NPA) activity rating system. The higher the rating, the higher the NPA. Our Manuka comes in three grades, 5+, 10+ and 15+ and you can buy it online at www.hilltop-honey.com.”
