Introducing Batch 022: Nocino Barrel Finished!
Our Tennessee tribute to the classic Italian-style Nocino (walnut liqueur) takes a toasty Tennessee High Malt mash bill and introduces a combination of chestnut & hazelnut flours to the spirit prior to distillation. After more than 4 years in charred oak barrels, the spirit was then finished in black walnut liqueur barrels for over 1 year. The result is a rich, spicy, and delicately nutty dram fit for a winter time chestnut roast.
