Fresh and fruity plum flavour.

Enjoy the combination of mellow junmai sake (pure rice wine) and sweet/sour ume plums with this umeshu plum wine. Made by stewing plums in a solution of junmai sake and rock sugar, this liqueur is primarily sweet and sour in flavour, with a little umami richness to calm down the sharper flavours of the plums. Enjoy this plum wine chilled, on the rocks or with a mixer.

ITEM ID: #10419

Background

Plum wine (or umeshu, as it is known in Japanese) is made by steeping Japanese ume plums in sake 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. For a great range of umeshu and other fruit based Japanese liqueurs, take a look at Japan Centre's Umeshu & Others section.
