Last Christmas, Prague Zoo began to offer a unique liquor from their own distillery called Sloní moč – Elephant Urine.

The 40-proof liquor proved so popular that it’s back, now in distinctive packaging celebrating the Zoo’s 85th anniversary.

But while Prague Zoo does sell fertilizer and paper products made from elephant dung, they’re careful to note that no actual elephant waste is contained in this creatively-named product.

So if it’s not fermented elephant urine, then what, exactly, is in a bottle of Sloní moč?

“It’s a really unique recipe,” the Zoo states in the product description, revealing little. 

The liquor offers a “combination of fine spirits with the distinctive taste of carefully selected herbs.”

Samplers have likened the taste to be something “slightly reminiscent” to the popular Czech aperitif (and digestif) Becherovka.

A half-liter bottle of Elephant Urine runs 185 CZK. Note: while Prague Zoo’s e-shop has the liquor up for sale, bottles must be picked up in person from the Zoo.
