Pouatu Manuka Is Different
Pouatu is truly single-sourced.
We don’t blend from regions around New Zealand. Our intention is to capture the flavour of one place – the Forgotten World.
We sell only what our harvest provides each season; quantities are strictly limited.
The translate to unrivaled taste. Here at Pouatu we pursue a subtle, gentle flavour profile with a smooth, velvety texture and finish.
100% Raw and Unpasteurised Manuka Honey
Pouatu Manuka’s aim is to provide the best Manuka Honey to their consumers. They harvest their hive by only filtering to 600 microns to remove any unwanted bee parts and debris. While maintaining temperature to not more than 37 Degrees C. which is the temperature of the hive itself! This ensures that beneficial nutrients in the honey are not lost. The Manuka honey you are getting is straight from the hive, 100% natural and raw. Pouatu Manuka craftsmen and craftswomen share the pursuit of the utmost quality.
UMF Certified Manuka Range
Our flagship mono-floral honey (only nectar from the Manuka tree) range is a unique expression fo the Forgotten World. With a slight nutty herbal aroma, the palate exhibits subtle woody smoky melt-in-the-mouth notes reflecting the terroir.
Unlike other traditional dark Manuka honeys, Pouatu is a pleasing light amber in colour.
Available in several UMF grades including UMF 5+, 10+, 15+ and 20+

Pouatu Manuka is named after a nearby prominent landmark, Mount Pouatu, Pou meaning an important marker and Atu referring to an offering.
