Seggiano Sicilian Thistle Raw Honey 500g details and description
Seggiano Raw Thistle honey has a strongly floral bouquet, a pleasantly intense flavour, with a long sweet caramel finish. Ideal with all full flavoured pecorino and blue cheeses. A great table honey. Intensely purple thistle flowers grow in profusion on the wild stony slopes surrounding Sicily's citrus groves, from May to July. Their nectar makes a strongly aromatic amber-coloured honey, which crystallise and darkens within months of harvesting.
For six generations Michele Oliva's family has bred indigenous Sicilian bees and harvested their honeys, from the wild and spontaneous flowering plants of the Iblei Mountains, in eastern Sicily.
Their skill and accumulated experience in traditional bee husbandry, cold extraction of the honey and the family pride in its excellence guarantee natural, raw honeys of rare taste and quality.
We donate a percentage of the price of this honey to fund bee colony collapse research.
