Just after Christmas we harvested walnuts from a large tree growing in Armidale. The harvest is made when the husk is green and before the shell has properly formed.
Walnut husk is an amazing spice with an incredible array of flavours including chocolate, cinammon, coffee, vanilla and cloves. We call it "Christmas in a bottle" .. liquid alcoholic Christmas cake 'just like grandma made' and, as always, with limited stock availabilty only.. 26% alc v/v.
Drink as a digestive, goes beautifully with anything chocolate and anything milky... a Nocino Panacotta with a side serve of Nocino is THE ultimate dessert!!
The base spirit for our Nocino has been made from the fementation and distillation of Guyra potatoes, making it a real product of the New England.
