A luxurious plum liqueur. Akashi-Tai Shiraume Umeshu is made by preserving plums in the finest of Japanese sakes - premium ginjo sake made from Yamada Nishiki rice. In Shiraume, the mild flavour of brewed sake nurtured to perfection blends harmoniously with the fruity flavour of ume plums. No sharp tang of alcohol mars the finish on the palate. Since ancient times and still today in Japan, plum liqueur has long been considered a therapeutic drink. Shiraume can be enjoyed many ways - it is equally pleasant on ice or blended with either cold or hot water. Dry fruit, date and plum on the nose. It has sweet and rich dry fruits and plum flavours to taste, with a dry finish.
