“Choya” Umeshu 14% (Plum Wine) 720ml
$34.90 per btl
Umeshu, or ume fruit liquor, is a traditional Japanese liqueur. It has a sweet and tangy flavor with almond undertones. The ume fruit holds the key.
By maturing the whole fruit with the stone still inside, the optimum balance of ume extract and alcohol is attained. Citric acid in the berry gives Umeshu its delightful tang, and the refreshing flavor promotes appetite. Malic and succinic acids are also found in Umeshu. Because the fruit is soaked in alcohol during manufacture, the ume flavor can be extracted not only from the flesh and peel, but also from the stone. This method is responsible for CHOYA Umeshu’s distinct fruity fragrance, which includes notes of almond and marzipan.
