The rarest form of Mad honey is harvested above 3500 meters from sea level.
Few bees living above 3500 meters make it extremely difficult to harvest honey. And, only 200 jars of honey can be produced in a year.
All kinds of Mad honey are traditionally harvested with hunters descending cliffs with man-made ladders to harvest honey nestled beneath jagged overhangs.
They squeeze the comb making the honey rich in pollen and bringing out the strong flavor with a strong aroma.
It does not need further processing as it is filtered to remove external particles and packed in their most natural forms.
Rare Harvest Mad Honey contains the strong yet sweet aroma of Rhododendron with a unique smell of a blend of flowers. It also has extremely rich Grayanotoxin giving psychoactive hallucinating effects.
The sweet and tangy taste makes a slight tingling sensation on the back of the throat and a slight burning sensation on the tongue.
It is mainly harvested in the Central and Western parts of Nepal: Lamjung, Rukum, and Jajarkot districts.

Arrived in Time. Taste great.
It was expensive but I was very tempted to order it. I had a quick chat with Sanjay and he assured me that the Rare Harvest is the way to go if Money is not an issue. I ordered it and it doesn’t disappoint me at all. The honey tastes completely different than any other honey. The packaging is beautifully handcrafted. I wouldn’t hesitate to order it again.
Never had a better mad honey
