Manuka Honey

Working in harmoniously with the bees, land and beekeepers is the essence of crafting our Manuka honey, renowned for its superior health properties. Aotearoa, New Zealand’s unique climate and soil provides the environment for the trees and bees to thrive.

Before the arrival of Europeans, the Mānuka tree was used as a holistic medicine by the Māori people. This tapu (sacred) knowledge of the plant, its uses, applications; and incantations for healing the body and spirit, was passed down to selected people throughout the generations. The Manuka tree’s unique properties used to help treat a variety of internal and external conditions, like inflammation in the stomach and gums, wounds and to help females after giving birth. Today, Manuka honey is renowned for its superior health properties as a natural anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties.

Terroir and Bees

The lands we work on contributes to the quality and characteristics of our Manuka honey. Like a fine wine, the terroir in which the Mānuka tree has grown determines the quality of our Manuka honey. The complex character of the terroir affects the strength and vitality of the Mānuka trees. New Zealand has regional varieties of Mānuka trees – different forests produce different characteristics and UMF™ ratings of Manuka honey to one another. Blend that with our apiary team, ensuring our bees are happy, healthy, and have a thriving population, is what gives Three Peaks Manuka honey its distinct flavour and potency.
