Macadamia Castle 1Our favourite castle has launched online sales of their immensely popular macadamias and macadamia products.

“A lot of visitors coming through The Macadamia Castle cannot believe how good our macadamias taste as they’re used to the supermarket variety,” said Tony Gilding, the Castle’s owner.

“Because we’re the largest independent retailer of macadamia nuts in the country, every one of our nuts is guaranteed to be fresh and crunchy. They’re like different nuts to what most people are used to.

“The average time from when our maccas are roasted to when they leave the Castle is two weeks and they’re stored correctly in the meantime.”

The macadamia or ‘Aussie bush nut’ is a Northern Rivers native.

With all nuts grown and roasted within a few kilometres of the Castle, low food miles are a part of the ethos.

Indeed, the Castle’s Café Macca, run by Executive Chef Simon Shannon, who spent six years honing his craft at Sydney’s famous Rockpool restaurant, lists the food miles for each dish on his menu.

Shannon’s fare includes a macadamia infused beef burger, pancake stacks with crunchy macadamia caramel sauce and their celebrated macadamia baked cheesecake.

The new Macadamia Castle website offers a range of products including:

  • Macadamia nuts – roasted salted, chilli, wasabi, dark and milk chocolate coated, honey coated, natural, nuts in shell and bulk nuts in shell
  • Macadamia chips and meal for cooking
  • Macadamia snacks and biscuits
  • Macadamia pesto and butter

“Please check out our website, it’s the fine work of local identity Dr Baz,” said Gilding.

“You’ll see the nuts are well-priced and we have a range of macca products that make good presents. We ship daily to all parts of Australia.”

All locals placing an order on the website between now and Christmas and quoting coupon code ‘DEC’ will receive both a 10% discount on their order and a $10 Café Macca coupon.
