Toothpicks with Tasting Notes?

DanesonHaving spent the week in the woods, I felt it necessary to feature the tastiest product made of northern white birch: Daneson toothpicks. With flavours such as single malt, bourbon and salted birch (just to name a few), you may not need that digestif!

These small-batch flavoured toothpicks are the brainchild of Georgian Bay native Peter Smith. All components from essential oils through to packaging are sourced from Canadian and US suppliers, with the exception of corks from Portugal and Scotch from Islay. This makes a unique hostess gift or easy to pack souvenir. Neither hard on your wallet or on the environment — just one birch tree makes tens of thousands of toothpicks and Daneson participates in a reforestation program. Your teeth (& the environment) will thank you!

Tasting notes

Available at various independent retailers across Toronto, including Jonathan+Olivia (pictured here) for $10 each. Also available at Pod Design in Elora, Ontario and Dillon’s Small Batch Distillers in Beamsville, Ontario.

All photography by me.
