A luxurious plum liqueur made by preserving the fruit in premium sake, softening the spirit and enhancing the plum flavour. This is best served chilled on its own in summer, or with a little hot water in winter.

A firm summertime favourite, Umeshu is a liqueur made from plums, or “ume” in Japanese. Its sweet, fruity flavours make it a popular choice among many, with great satisfaction derived from the full and bursting taste of our plums, macerated in Ginjo sake for 6 months and aged in enamel tanks for 2 years.
Tasting Note - A voluptuous bouquet of confit cherries and plums is followed by a sweetness in the mouth, with generous notes of plum and almond. Shiraume Ginjo Umeshu gives a fresh, lingering finish.
