A wine-based liqueur flavoured with green walnuts made at Distilleries et Domaines de Provence in the South of France where the drink is traditionally taken as an aperitif, or as an accompaniment to blue cheese.
The walnuts are harvested on or before St. Jean's day (John the Baptist) on 24th June to ensure they are still green and unripe, before the shells start to harden.
