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.
