- Aug 4, 2009Hi Wal (and Joe),
Looks like green walnut macerated and left to sit a while is the way to go on this one. Another forum member and very good friend Joe more or less advised the same thing, so with two stillers of both your experience advising green walnut nuts, well green walnuts is the way I'm going. Thanks a bunch lads.

I'm rightly or wrongly assuming this aperitif is made from walnut oil. And will be adding a specified and as yet unknown quantity of walnut oil to the ½ litre of 95 % Abv alcohol. Will it chemically mix with this high % Abv without settling out? How strong a flavour profile is Walnut Nut oil? And will I need much as I have ½ a litre and can get more?

I have found among all the visitors that come here. Men are the ones who take a shine to it most. So if anyone can help with any suggestions I would be really more than grateful and happy to try it out if I thought it would help
