Smooth plum wine infused with Yamazaki whisky.

By using the bittersweet, creamy, oak-matured tones of their famous Yamazaki whisky to enrich this fruity plum wine, Suntory takes inspiration from Western-brewing techniques to create a rich and thoroughly refreshing umeshu plum liqueur. Blended with fruity and roasted vanilla notes, thanks to adept use of their old oak Yamazaki whisky casks, this plum wine is aged to produce a wonderfully deep and aromatic palate. Finished with a light touch of brandy to sweeten the bitter edge of this complex plum wine, this exquisite beverage is best enjoyed chilled, whether straight or mixed with soda water.

Alcohol 20% ABV.

Background

Umeshu is made by steeping unripened Japanese plums in alcohol and sugar to allow the flavours to infuse. The sour flavour of the ume plums and the sweetness of the sugar combine to give umeshu a sweet and sour flavour. Best served chilled, umeshu can be enjoyed straight, mixed with soda, or combined with other beverages for a seriously fruity cocktail. Take a look at Japan Centre's Umeshu & Others section to explore more fruity liqueurs from Japan. 

How To Use

This delicious drink is fantastic as either an aperitif or digestif.
• Drink straight, on the rocks to enjoy its unique matured aroma.
• For cocktails (umeshu sodawari), simply mix 50 ml of umeshu plum wine with 100 ml of soda water to serve.
