Umeshu Plum Liqueur 720ml
Urakasumi create some of our most popular sakes, but nothing prepared us for the quality of their premium Umeshu.
Umeshu is a Japanese liqueur made by steeping ume plums in sugar and alcohol. Urakasumi use a base of Junmai sake as the alcohol component, which creates an Umeshu with umami depth, a clean finish and real finesse. Wonderfully sweet, this luxurious liqueur displays notes of plum, cherry, almond marzipan, amaretto, cranberry, cinnamon and brown sugar, but all that sweetness is kept perfectly in check by a refreshing twist of tart lemon and yuzu acidity.
Sip this nectar over ice with desserts, sorbets, dark chocolate, cherry liqueurs, red berries or spicy food; or topped up with soda, tonic water (garnished with pink grapefruit) or Prosecco on a summer’s day. If you can bring yourself to do so with something so exquisite, it also makes a wonderful base for marinades in barbeque season.
The Saura Brewery, located in Miyagi prefecture, was founded in 1724 to create sacred sake for the Shiogama Shrine. The name Urakasumi means misty bay, a reference to the beautiful location looking out over the Pacific Ocean. They are famed for their elegant and classic style, making it always a sophisticated choice.
