This Watson & Son Manuka Honey MGO 600+ is extremely rare and limited because of its very high level of MGO (methylglyoxal).
Watson & Son produce a range of premium Manuka honey with various levels of MGO and this is at the super high end of the scale.
MGO is important as research into Manuka honey has established that this naturally occurring element is partially responsible for the antibacterial characteristics of the honey.
Watson & Son Manuka Honey started life as a family-run business, but now the company is owned by Ngāi Tahu, one of the most important of the Maori tribes in the southern region of New Zealand.
The limited supply of Manuka honey with this level of MGO is one reason for why it is more expensive than regular honey.
Another reason is that the Manuka bush often grows in very remote locations even if in very beautiful and scenic areas far from human activity and pollution.
This Watson & Son Manuka Honey 600+ is also certified, which gives further assurance to consumers that it is a genuine Manuka honey.
Manuka honey can be enjoyed in so many different ways either in drinks and smoothies or then as a natural health and beauty ingredient for making your own exfoliant or purifying facial.
And if none of the above sound suitable, you can eat it from the jar and just marvel at this incredible wonder of nature.
(NB children and infants below the age of twelve months are advised not to eat any type of honey).
