The wondrous world of flavours

The wondrous world of food flavours never ceases to amaze me. Take, for example, the ingredients of this rather delicious goat cheese. Everything looks perfectly normal until you stumble across... "natural goat flavour".

Now what is that supposed to be? And, more interestingly, how on earth do you make goat flavour? Squeeze out goats? Collect yukky stuff from goat pens? And why would you need to add extra goat flavour to goat milk? What am I not getting here?
