Oberösterreich is one of nine states (Bundesländer) in Austria, forming a portion of its northern border with the Czech Republic (Bohemia) and Germany (Bavaria). Also known as Upper Austria, its landscape is one of the country’s most dramatic, incorporating rivers; the spring-fed lakes of Salzkammergut region; and the densely wooded Kobernaußer forest, as well as the alpine mountains and foothills for which Austria is revered. Linz is its capital city. With its altitude, soils and continental temperature variations, most of the region is unsuitable for the vine. Instead, Oberösterreich is renowned for its cheeses, hops, vegetables and orchard fruits: apples, pears, cherries and apricot. Some of the country’s most celebrated eau-de-vies and fruit brandies are made here.

    For three generations the Purkhart family has produced this all-natural walnut liqueur from the same family recipe, renowned for its balance and exceptionally smooth finish.

These walnuts steep for months in grape brandy and for the last month with a variety of spices and alpine botanicals. The result is a rich and flavorful walnut liqueur that is not overly sweet, perfect after dinner, in coffee, cream, or egg drinks. Full details
