The Tamworth Distillery in New Hampshire is selling a limited edition whiskey that is flavored with a substance secreted by beavers. The distillery gets the secretion from a local animal trapper.
The website claims the whiskey has a “dry, smoky spice with fleeting hints of fresh-cracked boughs and mint that open up to reveal rustic-sweet sensations of wet hay, vanilla, wood sugar, and saddle leather interspersed by waves of red fruit”.
According to the company, “The sac excretion exhibits bright and fruit qualities (raspberry) and rich leathery notes along with a creamy vanilla aroma. These notes are also very common among barrel aged spirits, so a natural progression took place”.
