Walnuts are the kings of the nut collection, with their large round shape, but the best way ever to imbibe them is in a new Walnut Liqueur just launched by liquid deli Demijohn.

Walnut LiqueurAs the first British Walnut Liqueur to be made in the UK it overtakes all other nutty winter drinks and is the ultimate after dinner drink for this season. Made from walnuts picked in the early summer by the Demijohn team in East Sussex, and then made in Somerset, this very dark, strong liqueur takes at least 40 days and nights to infuse but the resulting wait is worth it. As a delicious, strong flavored drink, with a hint of infused walnuts and cloves, its subtle sweetness and spiced overtone make it a perfect drink for the cold winter months.

Based loosely on the Northern Italian Nochino Liqueur, Demijohn’s Walnut Liqueur is made by combining Apple Eau de Vie as the base spirit with British walnuts and cloves.

Black Walnut LiqueurDemijohn has just introduced it this week into its shops and online at www.demijohn.co.uk, with prices starting at £10.40 for a 100ml bottle, making it an affordable, unusual and delicious gift. Add a personalised message for free and you have Christmas sorted too.

Angus Ferguson from Demijohn says: “The process of making this drink has been a wonderful adventure which started with Frances, my Wife, having run experiments on our kitchen table last year to discover the secret recipe. We then picked the walnuts on our 10th birthday on 1st July, a beautifully hot Summers day. The reward for all our effort and patience is just 250 litres of the most delightful drink. There will never be enough of this truely unique drink, which is a perfect addition to any Christmas feast!”
