Honey is quite common in the USA but pure, raw and unpasteurized honey from far away locations are like gems – rare and hard to find. Once discovered, they are delightful to have or share with friends or family. Mountain Valley Honey, a New Zealand brand of uncreamed, raw, and all-natural honey, is one such product that took the US honey market by storm with its delightful gift sets featuring a variety of unique honey flavors from New Zealand, including the superfood Manuka honey.
One gift set offers six honey flavors – the Beech Honeydew, Kamahi, Native Bush, Autumn Gold, Kanuka, and Manuka honey. Each of these varieties gives a distinct flavor that budding chefs can use in different recipes.
“Most people don’t realize that different kinds of honey have subtle differences in their flavor – much like wine. People love trying the different flavors in the gift set,” said the company representative.
The company attributes the success and popularity of its six-set honey gift boxes in the US to America’s real appetite for exotic honey. Since its launch on Amazon, the gift boxes were flying off the shelves and have consistently been the top-selling honey gift set from New Zealand.
People are purchasing the company’s six-set gift sets for birthdays, weddings, Christmas, and other occasions, leaving great reviews and encouraging others to try a box as a sampler to see for themselves.
One user said, “This is wonderfully packaged for gifting! You can kind of see it in the pictures on the product page – the box has two tiers, which pull out as a beehive’s boxes would pull out – so clever. The package comes with an information card with five categories of honey-related information signed by the owners, Murray and Nicky Elwood. Also included is a small tote bag perfectly sized for the honey bottles. All this and yummy honey besides! A+.”
Founded by Nelson-based couple Murray and Nicky Elwood many years ago, Mountain Valley Honey’s products are sourced from remote forests, stunning mountains, pristine valleys, and the hidden waterways of the land.
The company takes pride in choosing floral sources in bush and pasture areas across the top of the South Island of New Zealand. These locations are found in the Marlborough Sounds, Mount Richmond Ranges, Southern Marlborough, Tasman, and Buller regions.
Mountain Valley Honey customers are guaranteed to have high-quality honey sets as the brand bears the Buy NZ Made trademark and FernMark Licence. The brand also works with the Nelson Chamber of Commerce, a non-profit organization of 500 small and medium businesses across the top of the South Island of New Zealand, that enables business growth, sustainability, and job creation while keeping strong and productive relationships with its community.
