Watershed Distillery’s Nocinofest 2021
Join Watershed Distillery for NocinoFest 2021 on Saturday, December 4, 2021 from 11 am – 4 pm. In addition to our Barrel-Aged Nocino, they’re introducing a brand new addition to the Nocino family, Bourcino!
Watershed began making Nocino – a traditional Italian liqueur crafted from walnuts – in 2014 and remains one of the few producers in the US. Bourcino is the first-ever release of Nocino made with bourbon instead of the traditional vodka.
Bourcino is a distillery-exclusive limited release and bottles will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis at Nocinofest on Dec. 4 beginning at 11 a.m. Bourcino is bottled at 26.6% alcohol by volume and will retail for $34.99 per 375 ml bottle. The original and ever-popular barrel-finished Nocino will also be available at Nocinofest as well and throughout the holiday season. Barrel Aged Nocino is bottled at 24.8% alcohol by volume, available in 375 ml bottles, and retails for $29.99.
NocinoFest will include great local partners including Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream and Winan’s! Free parking is available on-site. Masks will be required indoors while not eating or drinking. No admission required; details here.
