Made with fully ripened plums. The umeshu plum wine in this glass bottle has been made using fully ripened nanko ume plums, which are well known for their peach-like sweet aroma and a flavour completely free of any bitterness. As such, you can rest assured that this plum wine will be deliciously sweet and fragrant. Great as an aperitif or dessert wine, as well as fantastic in cocktails or served on the rocks.

ITEM ID: #10243

Background

Plum wine (or umeshu, as it is known in Japanese) is made by steeping Japanese ume plums in sake alcohol and sugar until the flavour of the plum has infused into the alcohol. This particular combination of ingredients gives umeshu a deep, sweet/sour flavour. Umeshu is always better served chilled, but it can be enjoyed straight, on the rocks, or combined with other beverages for a fruity cocktail.
