£21.00

Luscious umeshu made from fine sake and fully-ripened plums.

Squeezing the maximum sweetness and crisp flavour into this fruity umeshu plum wine, Nihon Sakari combines the delicate consistency of their finely-brewed sake with plump richness of Kishu's famous nanko-ume plums. Fully-ripened until they naturally fall from the tree, the regional plums used to flavour this fragrant plum wine are at their highest quality, guaranteeing a sweet, full-tasting sip of refreshing umeshu goodness. Refined with sake so its palate finishes on a pleasantly dry tingle, this smooth amber wine can be served hot or cold, but is experienced best freshly-chilled on the rocks.

Alcohol 10.5% ABV.

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.
