***ATTN: BOOZE LOVERS*** Are you willing to try anything once?!Even if it involves a beavers NUTS?!
Distilleries and independent breweries are popping up everywhere it seems! Putting a twist on beer and spirits. Some really tasty, like raspberry ale and peach lager. Some questionable like this New Hamsure distillery. Think of our beloved national animal, the beaver. Now think of his nuts! I would have NEVER in a MILLION YEARS thought it would be a good idea to put a beavers NUTS into Burbon but here we are. Getting specific it's -- beaver secretion. 88-proof bourbon selling for $65 per 6.7-ounce bottle. Flavored in part by scent oils from the castor sacs of beavers from New Hampshire.
"It's aromatic, very distinct. It's leathery, rich, slightly fruity in a non-traditional sense. With the whiskey, it really works in quite well," Tamworth distiller Matt Power told the New Hampshire Union Leader.
"I'm sure you've had castoreum, you just didn't know it. When you eat something good and you see 'natural flavors,' a lot of time you can thank a trapper," he said.
