OUR STORY

We're ShortHive and we love honey. 

This precious gold liquid has been in our family for a long time. Our Grandfather has been a beekeeper for over 50 years. An award here, an award there … our family knows how to harvest some pretty fine honey.

One chilly afternoon, we were sitting around the farm table talking all things bee-keeping when someone had the brilliant idea of infusing our honey with different flavours. Three weeks later, we were back at that table taste-testing our crazy infusions. Lavender, chai, lemon, orange, the list goes on. Three flavours emerged as our favourites - Salted, Espresso, and Chilli.

The saltiness of the Murray River Salt combined with the sweetness of honey created a butterscotch-like flavour that was the perfect accompaniment to a bowl of creamy vanilla ice-cream.

The Espresso infusion was like nothing any of us had ever tasted. We slathered it on warm, freshly baked scones, and the flavours were heavenly.

After multiple tests with different types of Chilli, we finally found the right one - Habanero. The delicate sweetness of our honey, mixed with the intensely fiery Habanero Chilli delivered the perfect balance between spicy and sweet.

By 2017 we knew we had to share, and so here we are, sharing with you.

A couple of years passed and we knew we wanted to release another flavour, but we couldn't agree on the right one. On another cold afternoon we were drinking hot chocolate and someone suggested the idea of making a chocolate honey. After six months of testing a trialing we finally released our latest flavour in 2020 - Cacao Honey.
