Corsican chestnut liqueur

Chestnut liqueur is a must-have drink on our island of beauty. If you like chestnut and liqueur, you will melt with pleasure! At the same time delicate and sweet, it is very popular in appetizers, cocktails and desserts.

Tasting ideas

The chestnut liqueur is simply pure, directly on ice in a digestive glass. You can also add a small dose to your glass of white wine or champagne. Regarding cocktails, there is one that I particularly appreciate, it is a mixture of chestnut liqueur, vodka, apricot cream, lemon juice and cherry, it's a delight! It also blends perfectly with the scent of apple so do not hesitate to use it in pastry. One last tip, try the pancakes with flour and chestnut liqueur, I will say no more.

The chestnut liqueur from the Orsini estate

Fruity, sweet and delicate, the chestnut liqueur from the Orsini estate surprises with a subtle and intense fragrance. Made from Corsican chestnuts, it is handcrafted in Calenzana based on ancient recipes that are as original as ever. The Corsican Orsini chestnut liqueur is therefore the result of the quality of a land, a passion and a tradition... and a long work of maceration. The estate has already received several medals at the Paris agricultural competition and is now one of the best producers of Corsican wines and liqueurs.

The chestnut and Corsica

According to a famous Corsican proverb, it says: "A chà un ni hà, un ni mangna. Se tu voli a farina Va à coglia a castagna" / "He who has nothing does not eat. If you want flour, go pick chestnuts." Indeed, the chestnut was for a long time the staple food of the Corsican people, commonly called "the bread tree", Pasquale Paoli himself said: "As long as we have chestnuts, we will have bread". The chestnut will therefore remain of paramount importance in terms of food and construction until the beginning of the 20th century. But from the First World War, traditional farms began to be abandoned for the timber trade. As a result, Corsica lost more than half of its chestnut forests in 25 years. Then it was the abandonment of the timber trade, which allowed the forests to recover, and from the 1970s, the cultivation of chestnuts restarted. Since 2006, Corsican chestnut flour has been protected by a controlled appellation of origin (AOC) and since 2010 by a protected designation of origin (AOP) at EU level. I will end with a quote: "Corsica is like the chestnut, indispensable, immortal and full of flavors".
