Charbay Nostalgie Black Walnut Liqueur

In Celebration of Our 40th Anniversary

A luxurious liqueur made from hand-picked Black & English Walnuts. The extraction technique, which creates the depth of flavor of our renowned Nostalgie, has been passed down to Marko from his father, Miles. Once the one-year(ish) extraction is complete, we add our secret mix of herbs and spices as a finishing touch to this exceptional liqueur.

  • Made from organically grown Black & English Walnuts
  • For the elegant and rich flavor, we developed a unique 14-month extraction process
  • Highly intensive to create, we can only make it in small batches

What to expect? Silky nut and vanilla flavors. Rich, balanced sweetness, like a warm, freshly baked nut pie straight from the oven. A pleasing finish that is sweet without being cloying. A family favorite.

“Best liqueur in the world!” – Paul Pacult, Spirit Journal

Questions We’re Often Asked

What is a liqueur?2023-11-28T15:33:18-08:00

The common definition of a liqueur is an alcoholic beverage (typically brandy) flavored with fruit, spices, nuts, herbs, or seeds. Yes, our Nostalgie Walnut Liqueur fits this description on a basic level but we never do basic. We build this liqueur piece by piece with only pure, natural flavors we make and extract ourselves. The black walnuts are hand-harvested, and soaked in our own 12-year-old Brandy for two years – creating a layered, complex extraction to which we add our family’s secret blend of herbs and spices to complete the picture.

How do you drink Nostalgie Walnut Liqueur?2023-11-29T18:45:54-08:00

Mostly straight. But enjoyable in so many ways – drizzle over vanilla ice cream, freshly baked chocolate brownies, or pumpkin pie, or simply add a shot to your Espresso. It’s a versatile liqueur so let your imagination run wild.

Can I drink Nostalgie straight?2023-11-28T15:40:49-08:00

Yes, and we recommend it neat, no ice. We believe you want to taste the purity of our hand-crafted spirits and extracts, which is why every one of our products are distilled to be enjoyed on their own, including our Nostalgie Black Walnut Liqueur. After all, our belief is that only if it tastes good on its own, does it deserve to be used in a recipe or a cocktail.
