Nocino Il Mallo Black Walnut Liqueur


The best place for nocino is Modena, and the best Nocino there is made by Il Mallo. (‘Mallo’ means ‘husk.’) Their nocino is made by harvesting plump green walnuts, traditionally in June around the feast day of St. John the Baptist, slicing them thinly, then macerating them for about a year in almost pure alcohol. The walnuts are then drained, pressed off, and blended with a separate infusion of clove, coriander, true cinnamon, and sugar. After another 9 months of aging it is bottled.
