This question came up on another forum, so I thought I'd ask the experts.
Has anyone ever heard of, or tried, Hickory Nut wine?

what's a hickory nut?
Nuts from a Hickory tree. There are many varieties of Hickory, and only one that's bitter. The Shagbark Hickory is a premier nut, rich in oils and used in baking and other dishes.
Think Acorn? Beechnut?

Yeah, well, that's why I'm trying to get info on Hickory nuts. Special handling, like you say. I already told this guy that the key question was any toxins that might be produced during fermentation, and how to prepare them (boil, pulp, chop, etc.).
