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 a year ago after learning that elephants eat a variety of fruits and flowers and yet digest less than a third of it. They describe the gin’s flavor as “lovely, wooded, almost spicy, earthy” and one that changes subtly with the seasons and location. The gin bottles are marked with the date and coordinates of where the elephant dung was collected Eventually only the dung remains of the fruits, flowers, leaves and bark eaten by the elephants are left behind which are then sterilized and dried again and placed in an airing cupboard. Eventually, the remains are infused in the gin. A bottle sells for around 500 rand, or about $32.
