Legend dictates that the walnut husks used to make nocino need to be picked on June 24th, the day of San Giovanni. Don Ciccio & Figli abides by the legend and follows the same tradition. They start the process of creating nocino each year with manually harvested green walnuts from California. Cinnamon and clove are added to complement the buttery consistency of the hardy walnut oils.
This is a semi-sweet liqueur with aromas of green walnuts, baking spices, vanilla, and ripe berries, with a long and rich finish. It is a perfect sweetener for whiskey cocktails.
