Ratafià di Noci, obtained from the infusion of walnut mallo in alcohol, is one of the typical liqueurs of Andorno, home of Ratafià. Like all ancient liqueurs, its origins are lost over the centuries and are shrouded in legends. The still green nuts, wrapped in their mallo, were to be harvested on the night of June 24, the day of spells. Infused in pure alcohol with sugar and spices, they were left to rest for a few months. The advice is to drink it smoothly or with ice. Excellent combined with the finest cheeses of the tradition, it is an excellent ingredient in the preparation of desserts. Try fruit salad or vanilla ice cream.
