A rich plum wine that wrings out only the finest flavour.

Made using only the most succulent plums hand-picked from the Kishu region of Wakayama, Hakutsuru Shuzo ensures their traditional pickling and fermentation process squeezes the most potential out of each fruit into their original plum wine. With a full-bodied aroma and illustrious amber colour, this wine shows off how easily it is to savour, expanding the bold and juicy taste extracted from each plum into a refreshing and sour sensation in the mouth that hits just the right level of satisfying sweetness. Perfect to open or close a meal, this plum wine works well with other astringent tastes and mixes well in cocktails to give spirits a more pleasing kick.

Background

A versatile alcoholic drink enjoyed across Japan for its sweet, sour taste, umeshu plum wine is increasing in popularity worldwide for its fruity, refreshingly light qualities. By steeping plum fruits in alcohol and sugar just before they ripen, the juicy goodness of each plum is extracted, producing plum wine with a swelling mouthfeel and beautiful amber colour. Often sold with the same plum fruit inside to further mature its rich yet gentle flavour, this wine can be wonderful hot or cold, whether it's cut water, ice and tonic or even mixed with spirits such as rum or gin. Check out our rich range of Umeshu Plum Wine at japancentre.com and see why this much-loved tipple has got everyone talking.

Tastes great. I preferred it chilled. I also tried the suggestion of adding some sparkling water. That was good too.
