Naked Hazelnut is a rich and decadent liqueur featuring intense nutty flavours with subtle chocolate undertones.
Made right here in our distillery, this is a 'revamped' take on the classic Italian recipe. Like with all our liqueurs, we wanted to inject plenty of 'oomph'. Think of that famous Italian hazelnut liqueur and double the depth, nuttiness and length and remove that artificial nutty taste - that's what we set out to achieve with this latest addition to our liqueur line-up.
To make it, we roast and crush 100% Australian hazelnuts (grown on a farm in Victoria in fact). To this nutty paste, we also mix in a smattering of organic cacao nibs to lend a little ‘chocolatey’ edge. We then infuse everything patiently in spirit to slowly extract all the flavourful oils. Finally, we add an infusion of aromatic roots to add a touch more earthiness to the flavour profile.
We use real ingredients throughout and deliberately avoid filtering the liqueur to ensure no flavour is filtered out, so you may notice some sediment and oils that may drift out of the liqueur over time. Simply give your bottle a quick shake and all will be normal again!
Contains precisely 0.0% artificial colours, flavours and preservatives. Vegan friendly (we don't use any animal products nor processes throughout).
On the nose you'll pick up a big whiff of fresh roast hazelnuts intermingling with earthy notes and aromas of bitter chocolate. Traces of Christmas pudding. There's a slight woodiness too, so close your eyes and imagine being in the middle of a hazelnut plantation.
On the palate you'll be greeted with some sweetness upfront, which kicks the palate into gear just before a wave of nutty goodness and more woodiness arrives. It's thick, decadent and syrup-like and has the strength to stand out in a cocktail.
On the finish, you'll experience a sweet ending that lingers for a while, but not too long. A bit more woodiness comes through onto the palate amidst the collapsing wave of nuttiness, leaving a subtle spicy flavour to hang around for a moment longer.

All of our liqueurs, including Naked Hazelnut, are bottled predominantly in recycled glass spirit bottles. Between our lovely network of bars who help collect empty spirit bottles for us and the empty bottles that get spat out of our own tasting flight production line, we've managed to build up a locally sustainable supply of bottles. These bottles are given a "rough massage" to strip the labels off, then a hardcore hot rinse and a final polish up before being revived with a new liqueur filled life.
This product contains tree nuts and is made/packed on equipment that also packs other tree nuts (hazelnuts, almonds, pecans, walnuts, pistachios, macadamias, cashews, brazil nuts) and peanuts. We use best practice cleaning procedures but cannot guarantee the absence of any allergen.
This product should be stored in the original packaging or alternative airtight container in a cool, dark place. It is possible, but not necessary to refrigerate to extend shelf life.
What is the issue?
We try our best to provide our customers the most natural nuts, dried fruits and other products available on the market. For example, our hazelnuts are as nature intended.
During nut set, sometimes small moths can enter the nut prior to the hardening of the nutshell. Other producers manage the risk by pasteurising or spraying with insecticides. We don’t, and as a result it is possible to sustain an outbreak of pantry moth.
How you can extend shelf life
All nuts and dried fruit are semi-perishable products and should be stored in cool facilities (under 15C) to ensure long lasting freshness and also avoid growth
of pantry moths and other pests. Nuts do store well in refrigerated storage with no impact on product quality.
It is best to check your stock frequently and rotate stock – using a first-in, first-out process – and ensure use prior to the “best before” date to avoid spoilage.
Due to the products being natural, spoilage and pest infestation can occur due to
warmth and humidity even if the products are sealed – even unopened in the original packaging.
If there are any issues
Please check all goods on receipt as there are no claims for returns or refunds beyond days from date of receipt. We will not
be deemed responsible for any spoilage or growth of pests beyond that 7 day period.
If you have any issues – please email us on email@example.com.
When stored in accordance with the Recommended Storage practices identified above, this product has a shelf life of 12 months. It is marked with a batch number and “Best Before” date for consumers reference. The product should be consumed within 3 months of opening.

Australian grown nuts are known for their superior quality, taste and sustainability. Here are a few reasons why:
Why are Australian nuts better?
Food Miles: Many imported nuts come from faraway countries such as Turkey, requiring a significant amount of transportation and resulting in a larger carbon footprint. By choosing Australian grown nuts, you can reduce your environmental impact and support local farmers.
Taste: With a taste that speaks for itself, our nut products are carefully crafted using only the freshest, premium ingredients sourced directly from local farms. The unique terroir of Australia's nut-growing regions gives our products a distinctive, high-quality taste that is hard to find elsewhere.
How is our product sustainable?
Sustainable Agriculture: We strive to be an ethical and responsible business and we work closely with our farmers to ensure that our nuts are grown using sustainable practices. Our commitment to sustainable agriculture is not just about protecting the environment but also about maintaining the long-term viability of our farms and our industry.
Sustainable diets: We believe that a diet that is high in plant-based protein, like nuts, is a more sustainable and responsible way to meet your dietary needs. Animal agriculture, which is a primary source of protein for much of the world, requires a lot of resources, generates a significant amount of greenhouse gas emissions, and contributes to deforestation. By consuming more nuts and other plant-based sources of protein, you can make a positive impact on the environment and reduce your carbon footprint.
Carbon sequestration: our hazelnut orchard act as carbon sink as well, absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, so we are reducing the carbon footprint while producing high-quality hazelnuts
Overall, choosing Australian grown nuts is not only a delicious and convenient option but it also aligns with a more sustainable and ethical lifestyle. Carboor Harvest products provide a delicious and nutritious options for your diet and also a responsible choice for the environment.
