    The March edition of the very popular Devonshire magazine ‘Devon Life’ saw our co-founder, Devon local Jason Hayward-Jones, discuss all things honey with Food and Drink Editor Catherine Courtenay. We were delighted to have this opportunity to promote our delicious raw Australian honey and to spread some light on Gustare's origins.

    Jason grew up in South Devon. After some 25 years living abroad, he is pleased to be back home in Devon with his Australian family. As I'm sure you can imagine, it’s a rare occurrence for Brits who emigrate to the sunny climes of Australia to come back home to the English countryside. The lure of Australia's sunshine and outdoorsy lifestyle is too strong for most of them. The arrival of Jason and his family in the South Hams village of Stoke Gabriel created something of a stir, with locals surprised that the family of four would re-locate from the sparkling city of Sydney to serene South Devon.

    Australians are used to eating delicious raw honey, mostly derived from a variety of species of the abundant eucalyptus tree, but such tasty honey is not so easy to come by in the UK. Jason thinks it is unfortunate that shoppers in the UK have historically only had a limited choice of honey available to them in supermarkets – most of which are blends of European and non-European honey and lack any distinctive flavour. He hopes to introduce more UK shoppers to the delights of Gustare's premium, raw eucalyptus honey. He is particularly excited to bring a new sweet-tasting Australian Manuka honey, also presented in this edition of Devon Life, to the international market.

    The stunning photos of our honey featured in this Devon Life article were taken by South-West based photographer Matt Austin.
