Akashi-Tai Shiraume Ginjo Umeshu
Conventional umeshu, or plum liqueur, is made by preserving Japanese ume plums in distilled spirits. However, Shiraume is a luxurious plum liqueur made by preserving plums in the finest of Japanese sakes, premium Ginjo sake made from Yamada Nishiki rice. In Shiraume, the mild flavor of brewed sake nurtured to perfection blends harmoniously with the fruity flavor of ume plums. No sharp tang of alcohol mars the finish to the palate, as sometimes happens with conventional plum liqueurs.
