Single Varietal Honey
Thistle Honey is usually pale amber to medium amber in colour with an occasional greenish hue. A fresh, mild floral flavour initially with a lingering earthiness. Thistle is an unreliable producer of honey and is only released every few years. Thistle honey will granulate quite quickly to a smooth fine texture.
This is a rare honey and Limited Edition.
Thistle honey is quite rare in today’s Australian landscape as their spread is controlled. Occasionally when weather conditions have been right with enough springtime rain, a “patch” of thistles can provide nectar for bees. The honey can be variable from patch to patch.
Thistles are classified as a weed and usually grow in conjunction with cleared (and often neglected) farming land.
