Special gin is infused with elephant dung
MOSSEL BAY, South Africa (AP) — The makers of a South African gin infused with elephant dung swear their use of the animal's excrement is no gimmick.
The creators of Indlovu Gin, Les and Paula Ansley, stumbled across the idea after learning that elephants eat a variety of fruits and flowers and yet digest less than a third of it.
They described the gin's flavor as "lovely, wooded, almost spicy, earthy."
The droppings are dried and crumbled, then washed to remove dirt. Only the remains of the fruits, flowers, leaves and bark eaten by the elephants are left behind.
Those botanicals are then sterilized and dried again and placed in an airing cupboard.
They decided to name the gin Indlovu, which means elephant in the Zulu language. A bottle sells for about $32.
