Catalan ratafía is a traditional liqueur made from fresh walnuts and various aromatic plants.
Ratafía is made by macerating green walnuts for at least two months. During the maceration process, different aromatic plants are added (camomile, oregano, cinnamon, anise) which provide a wide range of flavours. The product made is aged in wooden containers for three months, at the end of which it is put into glass bottles that enable its characteristic caramel colour, which may vary in shade, to be seen. This liqueur is drunk after meals, as a digestif. It is best known in agricultural areas.
