Fruity, sweet and delicate, the liqueur of chestnut of the Orsini domain surprises by subtle and intense perfume. Made from Corsican chestnuts, it is elaborated by hand in Calenzana according to old recipes always as original. The Orsini Corsican chestnut liqueur is therefore the result of the quality of a land, a passion and a tradition... and of a long maceration work.

The chestnut and Corsica
According to a famous Corsican proverb, it is said: "A chì un ni hà, un ni mangna. Sé 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 has been for a long time the basic food of the Corsican people, commonly called "the breadfruit tree", Pasquale Paoli said it himself: "As long as we have chestnuts, we will have bread".
