Fragrant, fruity and boozy – what’s not to like? This smaller bottle of Japanese plum wine, or umeshu, has been made using top quality ume plums grown in the plum-growing region of Wakayama in Southern Honshu. This area used to be known as Kishu, hence the name ‘Kishu Plum Wine’. Enjoy the sweet/sour flavour and flowery aroma of this wine straight from the cooler. Glass bottle.

ITEM ID: #6311

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!

How To Use

This delicious drink is fantastic as either an aperitif or digestif.
• Drink straight, on the rocks or with champagne for a truly indulgent cocktail.
• Mix Ume Shu with lemonade or soda to make an ume sour.
• Add a splash to hot green tea to make a delicious winter warmer.
