Lava Glass

Origins

The story of this extraordinary honey is inspired by the land that provided it. The rugged backcountry and remote location of New Zealand provide the ultimate environment for our bees to collect nectar. Harvested from some of the most pristine locations this honey is pure and perfect in every single way. From the richness in flavour and high concentration of Methylglyoxal (MGO) it contains to the velvet smooth but bitter after taste on the palate. Let your imagination unfold in all dimensions when you witness the vessel this 'liquid gold' is harnessed in.

The glass was blown by an award winning studio at the shoreline of Lake Taupō, New Zealand. Lynden Over from Lava Glass has poured his passion into the design of this unique piece of glass, representing the beautiful landscape of New Zealand. The dynamic colour range in the glass resembles the rugged landscape of Tongariro National Park, part of the 'ring of fire' hidden under the submerged continent, Zealandia. In combination with these vibrant colours Lynden has chosen to incorporate pebble stones into his design to reflect the rivers flowing away from our precious mountains.

The style chosen is striking, awaking the senses of one hundred and twenty lucky individuals to own this true collectors item.
