News – “Distillery has new bourbon flavored by beaver secretion”

seattletimes.com – TAMWORTH, N.H. (AP) — Beaver-flavored whiskey, anyone?

A New Hampshire distillery has a new bourbon, Eau De Musc, flavored partly by the secretion from a beaver’s castor sacs.

 Tamworth Distilling says the secretion, called castoreum, has a history of being used as a flavoring and is on a small list of FDA ingredients called “generally recognized as safe.”
 

The distillery says on its website castoreum “exhibits bright and fruit qualities (raspberry) and rich leathery notes along with creamy vanilla aroma,” common among barrel-aged spirits.

Other ingredients are raspberry, Canadian snakeroot, fir needles, birch bark (tar oil and regular oil) and maple syrup.


Castoreum is the yellowish secretion of the castor analsacBeavers use castoreum in combination with urine to scent mark territory. … The castor sacs are not true glands (endocrine or exocrine) on a cellular level, hence references to these structures as preputial glands,castor glands, or scent glands are misnomers – Wikipedia
