A honey bottle can be obtained by using a glass bottle on either a beehive or bee nest with a honey level of 5. Doing this angers any bees inside, causing them to attack the player, unless there is a campfire or other block on fire beneath the nest or hive.
A dispenser with glass bottles can be used to collect the honey without angering the bees. The honey bottle appears as an item in the dispenser's inventory.
|Glass Bottle +
A honey bottle can be drunk by using it, restoring 6 () hunger and 1.2 saturation. Consuming the item also has the benefit of removing any poison effect applied to the player. Unlike drinking milk, other applied effects are not removed upon drinking a honey bottle.
Honey bottles can be drunk even on full hunger bar. Drinking a honey bottle takes 25% longer than eating other food - 2 seconds - and has a unique sound.
