Walnuts for Sipping

If you're nuts about nuts, you might be willing to pay big bucks for a taste of Nostalgie, a black-walnut liqueur produced by Domaine Charbay distillery in Ukiah. Master distiller Miles Karakasevic blends this luxury drink from infusions of nuts, herbs and spices that are made with his own hand-distilled, oak-aged brandy. A 50-milliliter bottle (slightly less than 1/4 cup) sells for $16. If you really like the stuff, you can indulge in a liter of it for $495. This also entitles you to a handmade flask that has been filled, sealed, numbered and signed by Karakasevic himself.
