This is a continuation of my swan valley weekend trip. Went to House of Honey there which was on the Food and Wine trail guide. We bought this AMAZING honey sparkling drink and it was so good we went back to buy a dozen, good drink to share among your friends during dinner parties! (bringing 2 bottles to my friend's house for hotpot tomorrow)
my friends tried this and all wanted to buy a few bottles off me. it was seriously good. Sparkling drink with real honey in it. Only $8.95 a bottle, refreshing and yummy drink!
House of Honey is a beautifully decorated shop with a cafe, and sells WA honey.
All the honey i saw were sourced from WA. Bought blackbutt, jarrah (apparently one of the best honey with medicinal properties) and karri honey. There is free honey tasting available so you can taste them before you buy. The honey is cheap as well compared to the supermarkets. If you buy your honey here, you can rest assured that it is full of natural goodness!
When i notice some crystallisation on top of the honey, the shop assistant patiently explained to me that that only occurs when the honey is natural and not chemically processed. Lots of honey in the supermarket are processed so they dont crystallise. So if your honey crystallises, it means it is natural and of good quality, you just have to heat it up slightly.
Purchase of the day. bought some natural honeycomb too. I love the cute and tiny honey pot i bought as well.
A small bottle of honey 250ml is about $3-5 which I find more than reasonable.
This is a good place for honey lovers. They serve honey tea and scones too in their cafe (The Sticky Spoon Cafe). They also have free sampling of their honey candy which was absolutely fantastic!!
