Yuma Sun - - DESERT LIFE -

TAM­WORTH, N.H. — 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 bar­relaged spir­its.

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