Of all the accolades that one can have, a Turkish Company has gone ahead to set the Guinness record for the world’s most expensive honey with a cave-harvested variety that is priced at over $5,400 per pound. Yes, that’s right!
Called the Centauri Honey, it is harvested from a cave more than 8,000 feet above sea level. It is dark in color and boasts a bitter-sweet taste. The honey also packs in immense medicinal value with magnesium, potassium, phenols, flavonoids, and antioxidants.
The golden liquid can only be harvested once a year (as opposed to the usual two to three times) to ensure that the bees aren’t disturbed. Once harvested, samples of the honey are further sent to the Turkish Scientific Council/Food Institute for verification and quality analysis.
Confirming the Guinness record, the company recently posted a video on Instagram to showcase the rare nectar along with the exclusive feat. The new harvest will be available by the end of October, with orders already pouring in. Way to go, Centauri Honey!
