In late September, we visited several members of the Shenandoah Spirits Trail. One of the members is Garofalo Artisan Liqueurs in Winchester, Virginia. We wrote an article about the distillery where the owner is infusing natural spirits with some inspiring results.
You will notice the first recipe below calls for Francesca Inzero Walnut Liqueur produced by Garofalo. This particular walnut liqueur process has been handed down from Francesca Inzero who immigrated to the United States in 1897. Francesca is known to have made this special walnut liqueur during Prohibition. Francesca’s grandson, Dick, who started the distillery, produced this liqueur.
