This rare honey is harvested by intrepid beekeepers who brave the bear-populated forests in the Kaçkar Mountains, overlooking the Black Sea in Turkey. Rhododendron flowers produce a powerful neurotoxin called grayanotoxin.


If bees feed on enough rhododendron nectar, the reddish, cloudy honey they produce gives off a pungent scent, bitter taste, and a high effect.

Mad Honey takes its name from its intoxicating properties, coming from the grayanotoxin contained in the nectar of rhododendron flowers.


This exceptional honey is characterized by its dark color and typical bitter aftertaste.

Used in alternative medicine, Mad Honey is known to treat stomach ailments, intestinal disorders, hypertension and sexual dysfunction.


Its medicinal use in Türkiye dates back to 2100 BC. AD, and it is usually eaten just before breakfast as a traditional remedy for impotence and hypertension.
