Bee Warm Macadamia Honey

Macadamia Honey is a rich pale amber to medium amber colour with sweet honey aromas and complex flavours of malt and caramel. It can be intensely sweet to taste but finishes with savoury tones. Macadamia Honey will slowly begin to form small individual crystals from the bottom of the jar upwards after about one year.
