Plum wine is called Ume(=Plum) Shu(=Sake) in Japan.
Umeshu is usually made from distilled liquor such as Japanese shochu.
However, our Umeshu is made with
Japanese sake as Kizakura is a sake brewery. It is unique!
Usually green plums are used for Umeshu, but we use ripe plums to aim for a complex and richer flavor. Our plums are mainly from Aodani in Kyoto, where is famous for high-grade plums.
To give a specila touch, adding plum puree which has been soaked with sake, it also gives thick and rich texture.
