Stedji brewery's new flavour: whale testicle. (Stedji/Wikipedia)
Jan. 12, 2015 (CBC Radio) -- It's the latest craft beer from Iceland, brewed in small batches using pure spring water. Oh, and flavoured with smoked whale testicles.
The testicles come from the endangered fin whale, which is legal to hunt in small quantities under Icelandic law. Dagbjartur Arilusson is co-owner of the Stedji brewery. He tells As It Happens host Carol Off, "It's really a normal beer but we add the whale testicle during the boiling procedure. It's the extra ingredient of the beer."
