Orahovac walnut liqueur is a Croatian liqueur made from unripe green walnuts. Its smell is just like the fragrance of spices. Walnut is bitter and is often enjoyed after dinner. It can also be used to add strength to winter cocktails. It is the "Most Famous Liqueur in the World". We can trace its history back thousands of years ago when the Celts dominated Central Europe. Today multiple versions of this liqueur can be found throughout Central Europe. It is still an exceptional drink to locate in the UK. The latest British made Demijohn Walnut liqueur is proof of my statement.

Walnut Liqueur is the perfect drink for sipping on cold winter nights by the fire. It has an espresso color, it's dark, contains aroma of spices and citrus with the slight bitterness of the walnuts, it has luxurious sweetness and a warming hint of cloves just conjure up the idea of Christmas in a wineglass. Other nut-based liqueurs appears less in an evaluation. Orahovac Walnut Liqueur has long used liqueurs made from Walnuts for their medicinal properties. When you are feeling poorly, give this drink a shot and sip it.

It also makes a great cheese drink, especially with crème caramel. The liqueur can also be added to coffee or hot chocolate for a dissolute treat, poured over ice-cream as a topping, or even as an ingredient to make boozy, grown-up ice cream.  After winter has passed, try it in a tall glass with ginger beer and ice.

Orahovac Walnut Liqueur Types:

Wherever there is an abundance of growing walnuts, you will see black walnut liqueur there. This seems to exist in the region around Central Europe from Italy, Southern Germany, Croatia to France. The mainly well known version, Nocino, originates from the Emilia Romagna region in Northern Italy, however, not so widely traveled from the regions where they are made. Similarly to drinks such as Licor de Nuez from Spain, Orechovka from the Czech Republic, and Diolikor from Hungary. By tradition, green walnuts are harvested on the eve of San Giovanni (Saint John), 24th June. They are then left to soak in a mixture of alcohol and spices to ward off evil spirits. For the duration of this time, the flavor and color from the walnuts are extracted. First a light greenish, yellow color, leading to what appears to be black is an extremely dark green. However, once the liqueur is uncovered to air during the filtering process, a chemical transformation occurs and the liqueur really turns black.
