Beaver-Flavored Booze

Eau de Musc proudly features an old-world flavoring technique that uses the oil extract from the castor gland of the North American beaver, which exudes a leathery, raspberry taste, and acts to fortify the whiskey flavors.

When it said Beaver flavored I was thinking of something else entirely.

There must be a joke in there about one's breath smelling like a beaver after a shot or two...

"Honey, your breath smells like beaver butt!"

The castor gland also is used to produce artificial vanilla flavour. However it is probably listed on your ice cream container as 'Natural Flavour' not 'Beaver Butt'.

Here's an article that mentions the food uses of castoreum (not to be confused with Fletcher's Castoria):

Given the small quantities produced, I suspect it's quite rarely used as a substitute for vanilla. Vanillin, the typical fake vanilla, is made from wood or a petrochemical.
