We are forever on the hunt for interesting locally made and owned booze and booze-related parts/pieces. Matt & Michael's Melbourne Jerky is a highlight of our recent hunting, as it's delicious and a familiar story; they were initially hobbyists, but now they're trying to make a fist of taking their delicious hobby into the professional world. It's a yarn heard before in the brewing, distilling, and winemaking scene, so it was just a matter of time before a snack purveyor's voice joined that choir.
Melbourne Jerky's Texan Honey flavour is made from MSA-Grade beef sliced into 7mm thick strips (pretty big!) seasoned with honey, a little Cayenne pepper, herbs, spices, and sauces. It's moist, tender, a little sweet, a little spicy, and friggin' moreish.
