Ambergris is a substance produced only by the sperm whale. It is naturally released by the whale as part of its normal biological processes. It is important to note that no whales are harmed in order to collect the ambergris. The ambergris is hand collected by dedicated beachcombers from the pristine coastline of New Zealand. “Beach cast” ambergris is also commonly referred to as “floating gold”
Although a range of qualities can be found in New Zealand; some of the ambergris which washes up on the New Zealand coastline is of a very high quality. New Zealand’s isolation and the vastness of the oceans surrounding the country may contribute to the high quality of the ambergris found here. Ambergris found in New Zealand may have been floating in the ocean for many years before finally reaching shore. The combined action of salt, water, ocean waves and sunlight cures the ambergris until it reaches a refined stage with a sweet, alluring fragrance.
