Nocino (No-chee-no) is an extremely rare black walnut liqueur, released once a year in limited supply.
You may notice, the back of the bottle says, “Thanks, Charlie!” Charlie is a local physician who shared his recipe with us because he was inspired by our story. Equally inspired by his story and generosity, we decided to add Nocino to our family of spirits.
Originating from a Northern Italian recipe, Watershed’s Nocino is an aged spirit made from raw, unripe black walnuts, sugar and spices. The walnuts must be harvested prior to the nut forming, and before they fall from the tree; creating a narrow window of time to produce this rarity.
