Nocello is a walnut and hazelnut-flavoured liqueur from Italy produced by the Toschi Vignola, its packaging is made all the more distinctive by the walnut glued to the top of each cork stopper.

It is perhaps not surprising that the best-known walnut liqueur should come from Italy - after all the ancient Romans highly regarded the walnut, considering it a portrait of the human brain. The outer husk was the scalp, the shell the protective skull, and the convoluted nut itself represented the two hemispheres of the brain.

Nocello was first produced by Monasteries in the Middle Ages as a medicinal elixir. According to superstition, the green walnuts must be picked on Midsummer's Day. The harvested walnuts are shelled and then soaked in oak casks of neutral alcohol on their shells for two years. The infused alcohol is then redistilled and herbs and spices added.
