What is UMESHU (梅酒) ?

The word UMESHU is composed of two words ; UME=梅=PLUM、SHU=酒=ALCOHOL BEVERAGE, and meaning PLUM LIQUEUR. The production method is very simple ; dip plum fruits into various type of alcohol beverages for a few months ~ a fer years. The method is very simple so the quality of plum is very important. Generally the taste is sweet and popular in Japan and other Asian countries.

What alcohol the plum is dipped into?

UMESHU is made from many kinds of alcohol. The most reasonable one is to use ethanol, so called white spirits. Not only the reasonable price, the less taste and less aroma spirits is good to complement the the original plum taste. When we require higher quality, we use better alcohol beverage like Shochu, Sake, Whisky, Brandy etc. so there are so many kinds of Umeshu.
