So, what is ambergris?

Ambergris is a rare and highly sought-after ingredient in the culinary world, prized for its unique flavor and aroma. It is a waxy substance that is produced in the digestive system of sperm whales and can be found washed up on shorelines or harvested directly from whales. Ambergris has a complex and intriguing scent, with notes of earthy musk, sweet floral, and marine brine. It is often used in high-end perfumes and gourmet cuisine, adding a distinctive flavor to dishes such as seafood, chocolate, and even cocktails. Due to its rarity and high value, ambergris is considered a luxury ingredient and is used sparingly in culinary applications.
