Hot Honey

$6.25

This hot honey is made by combining Carolina Reaper peppers (the world’s hottest pepper grown in South Carolina) from PuckerButt Pepper Company and our wildflower honey. Our hot honey is the perfect addition to any pantry!  Great for cocktails, biscuits, watermelon, pizza, and so much more!

Bee fact: While honey bees are capable of flying as far as 6 miles from the hive, they most often forage much closer to home in a 1 to 2 miles radius.  When a beehive is placed near a dense concentration of a single nectar source, the resulting honey is considered mono-floral or single-varietal and has a flavor that reflects the blossom type!

Product Variant:

great for cocktails

try on watermelon

Smokin' Ed Currie and a Carolina Reaper pepper.

The Carolina Reaper: Hottest Pepper in the World

     Bred in Fort Mill, SC, by Ed Currie, the Carolina Reaper earned the "World's Hottest Pepper" title from the Guinness Book of World Records in 2017. With an average of 1,641,000 Scoville heat units (SHU), it has rightfully earned its title; for comparison, a jalapeño tops out at a measly 8,000 SHU.

     Ed Currie's story is an amazing one; he didn't set out to breed the world's hottest pepper, and his interest in spicy peppers was just a hobby until his wife convinced him to make a business of it.  After nearly a decade of breeding, and many unsuccesful attempts, Ed Currie arrived at what we now know as the Carolina Reaper: the Hottest Pepper in the World.  Currently, Puckerbutt Pepper Company is the largest organic pepper farm in the United States.

     Apis Mercantile is proud to combine our South Carolina certified Wildflower honey and Ed Currie's Carolina Reaper to make our Hot Honey!  It packs a punch!  Enjoy!
