Nocino

$32

A seasonal favorite. Green (young) walnuts are hand-harvested in the PNW from our friends at Foraged and Found and delivered to us overnight. We cut each nut in half and macerate with eight other ingredients, including citrus peel, allspice, vanilla, and roasted dandelion root, for three weeks in non-GMO neutral grain spirit. We strain and proof to 45% abv and barrel age for one year. During this time, the flavors mellow and concentrate to reveal a very nuanced and balanced liqueur. We strain out of the barrel, filter, sweeten with organic cane sugar, and bottle at 22% abv. This rendition of the classic nocino is a less spice-forward, more complex, and less cloyingly sweet tipple. Imagine that maple syrup and vanilla extract had a baby… that’s our nocino.
