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.

Global kudos for sparkling wines

Another ringing endorsement for Tasmania’s world-class sparkling wines. One of France’s most respected champagne authorities has proclaimed our bubbly offerings to be amongst the best anywhere. Fourth generation French champagne maker, Cyril Brun, Chef de Caves for Charles Heidsieck, has likened our sparkling wines to those of the great champagne houses. During a recent visit to Tasmania, he told The Mercury: “Every time I taste the sparkling wine from Tasmania I feel like it is the one that could be potentially the closest to champagne.” About one third of all wine made in Tasmania is sparkling. The local industry is also booming, with latest figures estimating it is now worth $100 million to the local economy each year. Another $15.2 million is also generated by wine-related tourism.

Bellamy’s back in black

Tasmanian based baby food and formula company, Bellamy’s, has put the tough times behind, and is reporting healthy profits. The Launceston based company reported a net after-tax profit of $42.8 million for 2017-18. Revenue also jumped by 37 per cent to $329 million. This represents a major turnaround from the $800,000 loss the company had recorded for the previous financial year, and a previous share price crash. Bellamy’s Chief Executive, Andrew Cohen told The Advocate: “…the Bellamy’s turnaround plan continues to demonstrate results in terms of revenue growth, profitability, cashflow and the balance sheet…Beyond the numbers, the business has transformed over the period in terms of process and disciplines, but, more importantly, in terms of culture and capability.” He adds, growth is focused on selling organic infant nutrition into China and wider Asia.

Sparkling wine festival adds fizz

Tasmania’s celebration of all things sparkling – Effervescence Tasmania – has unveiled this year’s program and there are plenty of reasons to pop the cork in celebration. The Launceston-based festival, which bubbles into life on November 11, has included Hobart in the mix for its fifth festival. Effervescence Tasmania is described as one of the world’s best sparkling wine festivals, and all featured producers are by invitation only, ensuring all wines presented to guests are the best Tasmania has on offer. More than 1,200 enthusiasts took part in master-classes and attended dinners at last year’s event. And, as with every year, the highlight will be the Grand Tasting in the gardens of Launceston’s Josef Chromy winery. Australia’s first sparkling wine was produced in Tasmania from the 1826 harvest. Today, the island state is widely recognised as the country’s home of premium sparkling wine, with that market now accounting for about one third of all local wine production.

Gold for Van Diemens Land Creamery

The Pepperberry and Leatherwood Honey Ice Cream, from the Van Diemens Land Creamery, has taken out top gong at the recent Hobart Fine Food Awards, being named best ice cream. The artisan ice creamery also won a swag of 11 medals. Some of the flavours that scored gold included: Peach and Lemon Myrtle, Blood Orange Sorbet, and Whiskey Cream Ice Cream. The company, which is based in Elizabeth Town in northern Tasmania, has been producing premium ice cream for more than 12 years. To keep their ice cream authentically Tasmanian, they use as much local produce as possible – from local berries to olive oil and Tasmanian peanut butter. As well as retail outlets and restaurants, their award-winning ice cream can also be purchased at their punt on Hobart’s Constitution Dock.

One of Tasmania’s top seafood restaurants has just received a top award.
