People who have shopped for honey know that its variety, quality, place of origin, and many other facts determine its price. But did you know about the world’s most expensive honey?

World’s Most Expensive Honey Costs ₹9 Lakh Per Kg

The world’s most expensive honey is known as ‘Elvish Honey’. This exceptional honey costs a whopping ₹9 lakh per kilogram. The honey originates from Turkey’s Black Sea region. 

This honey is known to be one of the purest in the world. The speciality or factor that differentiates it from other honey is its taste and, of course, purity. 

Recently, a video surfaced on the internet that was posted by @HowThingsWork_. The video showed a man trying to extract honey with bees covering him completely. After facing all the challenges, the man successfully extracts honey from the comb.

The video is viral on the internet, and that is not at all a surprise because of what it features. In reality, the company that makes “Elvish Honey” goes to tremendous lengths to improve the quality of this honey, making it in a woodland cave remote from crowded cities. Prior to release onto the market, the Turkish Food Institute assesses the honey’s quality to make sure it meets exacting requirements.
