This version of Mad honey is found in various mountains of Nepal ranging from 1300 – 2500 m above seal level. This honey contains mild grayanotoxin and is preferred for regular consumption. This honey is also used for various aesthetic purposes. We named it the “Platinum Version” because it is as valuable as the name itself.
Aroma: Mad honey has a sweet and strong aroma of rhododendron. The smell is also like a blend of flowers mixed in a bottle. Some people also claim that mad honey has got a flowery and beer type of smell.
Consistency: Mad honey less viscous as compared to other honey. It contains around 24% moisture content while normal honey has around 18% moisture.
Taste: Taste of the mad honey is what makes it unique and preferable to customers over normal honey. This strong honey besides being sweet is also tangy. You can feel a slight tingling sensation on the back of your throat. It might create a slight burning sensation to your tongue.
Hand Squeezed honey: As mad honey is traditionally harvested, hunters squeeze the comb thus the honey is rich in pollen which gives strong flavour.
Light fermentation: Because of high moisture content in mad honey, there is light fermentation of the honey. We recommend storing in cool and dry places and stir well before consuming.
