From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Creme de Noyaux is an almond-flavored pink crème liqueur made from apricot kernels, which also flavor the better-known, brandy-based amaretto. The name comes from the French noyau: "kernel, pit, or core". It is an ingredient in the Pink Squirrel cocktail[1]. It is also an ingredient in a cocktail called Old Etonian.[2]
Creme de Noyaux has appeared in fiction as the vehicle for cyanide poisoning, due to the presence in apricot kernels of aromatic chemicals that break down into hydrocyanic acid when mixed with water. One famous instance of this is the short story, "Bitter Almonds," by renowned mystery author Dorothy Sayers [3]. The main character, a wine and spirits salesman, determines that a customer died after drinking the first (oiliest) glass of a bottle of Creme de Noyaux that had stood unopened for 40 years.
