Hakkaisan Japanese plum wine

Hakkaisan is one of the most famous sakes in the world. Hakkaisan brewery is located in Nigata prefecture which is called as "Sake Kingdom" in Japan since various kinds of famous sake are brewed in Nigata, such as Kubota. Hakkaisan brewery produces various kinds of liquors such as sake, shochu, beer and so on. Today, I want to introduce Japanese plum wine (Ume-shu).

ラベル

This ume-shu is produced using sake. Usually, ume-shu is produced using shochu. Sake cannot be used to produce ume-shu because a liquor having an alcohol content of more than 20% must be used to prevent propagation of bacteria (It is illegal to produce ume-shu using a liquor having alcohol content of less than 20% in Japan). Therefore, unwatered sake is used for producing this ume-shu.

中身

Ume-shu is usually sweet. However, Hakkaisan's one is dry and therefore you can enjoy it with meal (We usually enjoy ume-shu before meal). As soon as I opened the bottle, scent of ume enjoyed me a lot. Since it has dry taste as described above, you can drink it a lot. Its alcohol content is relatively high (14%). Be careful not to drink too much!

It costs only about 1400 yen. You can get one at Todoroki-saketen located in Sanchiku, Hakata Ward.

You can find its web site at http://www.todoroki-saketen.com/

Very informative! Now that I can understand why lower-alcohol-sake can also be used to make Umeshu. We commoner:) can not make this way at home, right? but I've heard some make it using brandy instead of white liqueur.
The dry-taste Umeshu should go well with food; I'd like to try it someday! byふっこ
