Miellerie The House of Honey

Miellerie means “the house of honey” in French. Yves Ginat, a Frenchman now living in Tasmania has a love for bees, honey and Tasmanian native flora.

Yves began keeping bees as a young boy in France. He has brought his techniques with him, and says of our honey, “it is a subtle marriage of French tradition and Tasmanian flowers”. Miellerie honey is pure, natural, raw honey: unprocessed and unheated, maintaining optimum natural aroma, health qualities, and characteristic crystals. Yves applies biodynamic beekeeping principles to nurture the harmony of bees and nature, composing exquisite aromas, flavour and vitality into lustrous honey.

Moo Brew

Moo Brew is an urbane confluence of art, style, great beers and downright confusing contradictions.

The original brewery was built on the lush grounds of the Moorilla winery on the banks of the River Derwent – now the site of MONA (The Museum of Old and New Art).  In 2010, a new brewery was built at Bridgewater, ten minutes north of the hatchling site. The architecturally-designed building houses a modern brewing facility, previously described as the best-appointed microbrewery in Australia. Established in 2005, Moo Brew is now the state’s largest locally-owned brewery. The Moo Brew labels display the works of Australian artist John Kelly. 

Backed by this blending of beer and art, Moo Brew's brewers continue to architect a beer style and brand which purposefully seeks out authentic connections with the palettes of all those who appreciate the art of fine craft beer.

Mt Direction Olives

Specialists in Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

In 1999 in the Tippogoree Hills of the Tamar Valley, Sean and Chrissie Ahern planted 2000 olive trees. About 1400 Frantoio [a Tuscan variety] and 600 Manzanillo [a Spanish variety] now form the basis for mount Direction's olive oil production. Early harvest produces a robust Frantoio and a more mellow, buttery Manzanillo but as harvest progresses both oils develop more fruity characteristics .These late season oils lend themselves to flavouring. Our garlic and chilli infused oils are among our most popular whilst our Lime Agrumato is mostly presold to last years customers. Oil production takes place at our own mill. Our vertically integrated company [ from paddock to package] allows us to make the claim: "from tree to tank in three hours".

Mures Fish Centre

Jill & George Mure opened Tasmania's first licensed seafood restaurant, Mures Fish House, in 1973 in Hobart. When they struggled to source quality, fresh, local seafood, George went fishing.

More than 40 years on, now owned by Will & Judy Mure, Mures remains a favourite of locals and visitors alike, located in Hobart's working fishing port at Victoria Dock.

Downstairs is Lower Deck where you can enjoy a wide variety of seafood from the licensed Bistro, including Mures' own line caught blue eye trevalla, as you take in the sights and sounds of the waterfront.

Check out the vast array of Australian seafood at the Fishmongers including rock lobster, salmon, scallops and mussels, where you can order freshly shucked Tasmanian oysters from the Oyster Bar. Finish off with a local roasted coffee or an ice cream from the Cafe.

Upstairs is Upper Deck for a more sassier affair with expansive dockside views and a la carte dishes, often changing daily with the freshest catch, featuring the finest seafood and very best local produce. Perfectly complement your meal with their award-winning exclusively Tasmanian wine list.

Coffee Liqueur warms Xmas spirits

A new boutique beverage will have coffee and spirits lovers rejoicing. Two of Tasmania’s top artisan producers have collaborated to bring a premium coffee liqueur to the market just in time for some festive cheer. Hellfire Bluff Distillery, based at Boomer Bay, and Hobart speciality coffee roaster, Zimmah Coffee, created the delicious tipple. Ruby Daly of Hellfire Bluff Distillery said: “We were so excited for the opportunity to work with another great Tasmanian brand to expand our range of locally produced spirits, and create a new premium product for our customers, here and throughout Australia.” She added Zimmah chose to use the ‘Son of a Gun’ blend – a full-bodied mix of Colombian, Guatemalan and Ethiopian beans – to deliver delicious flavours with rich and bold caramel and milk chocolate notes.

Salad days for Houston’s Farm

Another tick of confidence for Tasmania’s booming agricultural sector, with Houston’s Farm unveiling a new $5.8 million facility in the south of the state. The leading salad producer has just opened a new state-of-the-art, custom built, baby leaf production centre at its Forcett farm. The 80-hectare production unit will underpin growth in the company’s national supermarket supply contracts. Houston’s Farm, which was represented at the recent State Government trade mission to Asia, is seeking to expand export markets to Hong Kong, and this new facility is central to those plans. The new facility will also create 15 full time jobs. Houston’s has been creating innovative products for almost 30 years and has pioneered many practices and techniques that now see Tasmanian salads on shop shelves across Australia.

Tetsuya is number one - again!

The restaurant of iconic chef – and Brand Tasmania Ambassador – Tetsuya Wakuda, has once again been named as the best in Australia. And, fittingly it was the backdrop for a major investment dinner recently hosted by Tasmanian Premier Will Hodgman, in conjunction with Brand Tasmania. Tetsuya’s eponymous Sydney establishment has just won Restaurant of the Year at the Savour Australia Restaurant and Catering Hostplus Awards for Excellence. The prestigious award is the latest in a long list of accolades that Tetsuya has collected since opening in 1989, and he told Restaurant and Catering Magazine it is a reflection of those around him: “I congratulate my staff. The team won this, not me. A good restaurant is a team effort.” Meantime, Tetsuya has long been a champion of Tasmania which he describes as “beyond organic,” and his restaurant hosted a special dinner showcasing the finest from the island state to potential investors. Premier Will Hodgman led the guest list at Tetsuya’s ‘Taste of Tasmania Dinner: From Sky to Land and Sea’, which featured such exquisite combinations as: Cold Green Pea Soup with Bitter Chocolate Sorbet; Confit of Petuna Ocean Trout with Salad of Apple and Witlof; Poached Lobster in Vanilla with Cannellini Beans and Coffee Vinaigrette; and Chocolate Stone with Fortunato No 4. It was a stunning menu, and further proof that Tetsuya’s really does deserve the title of Australia’s best restaurant.

Tolpuddle chardonnay shines

A Tasmanian vineyard has shone at the 2018 Royal Melbourne Wine Awards. Tolpuddle Vineyard won four major trophies, with its 2017 chardonnay picking up three of the awards: Best Young White Wine; Best Chardonnay; and Best Single Vineyard. Tolpuddle winemaker, Adam Wadewitz said: “I guess we always knew the 2017 vintage was pretty special in Tasmania. The season was astonishing; late and cool, and it produces wines with that rarely seen ‘balance and intensity’ combination.” Tolpuddle Vineyard is located in the Coal River Valley and was established in 1988. It is planted solely with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. Other Tasmanian winners in Melbourne were: The Bay of Fires winery which won the James Halliday Trophy for best pinot noir with its 2017 release; the House of Arras, named Best Sparkling for its chardonnay/pinot noir Grand Vintage 2008; and Eddystone Point, awarded Best Riesling for its 2018 vintage.
