The thistle is a typically “island” honey as the only unifloral productions of thistle honey can be obtained in Sardinia, Sicily and on the island of Elba.

From the flowers of the thistle, which blooms in early summer, a highly sought-after honey is obtained, with a marked and persistent scent and aroma. Thistle honey spontaneously crystallizes a few months after harvest.

Flower (Latin): Galactites Tormentosus (Compositae)


Excellent as table honey and in combination with seasoned and spicy cheeses or in sour yogurt.
