Story from the certificate of authenticity:
'Kaliny-kalinypa’ or ‘ultukunpa’ is a Pitjantjatjara word for the honey grevillea flower (Grevillea juncifolia). This plant grows in sandy soils on the spinifex plains and on sandhills. It is very tolerant to fire, and produces beautiful yellow flowers at the end of its branches after rain. ‘Kaliny-kalinypa’ nectar is a delicacy for many Aboriginal people. One can suck the nectar directly from the flowers, or strike the flower against the palm of one’s hand to gather the nectar, which can then be licked off. ‘Kaliny-kalinypa’ flowers can also be picked and soaked in a billycan of water to create ‘honeywater’ (cordial). Morning is the best time to gather the nectar from these plants.
