TAMWORTH, N.H. — 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 said the secretion, called castoreum, has a history of being used as a flavoring and is on a small list of Food and Drug Administartion ingredients called "generally recognized as safe."

The distillery says on its website that 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.

That headline was a bit misleading, fortunately.

How is it misleading? Article says they are using castoreum, which I thought was highly regulated, due to mistreatment and/or death of beavers.

Beavers are teeming with bacteria. Did anyone see that doc about the Bhagwan Rajneesh sex cult where they tried to poison the town's water supply with dead beavers?!
