Whether you're looking for a dessert drink, an aperitif or a new flavor to add to your alcohol repertoire, you'll find that Japanese traditional beverages bring something new to the table.
What Is Japanese-Style Plum Wine?
Plum wine is a traditional drink called ume-shu that has been enjoyed by Japanese people through the centuries. The bold flavor of ripened fruits and rich caramel notes that is characteristic of this beverage is created by combining shochu — white liquor — and ume, the Japanese plum. Takara Plum is Takara’s rendition of the traditional tawny elixir ume-shu. It is perfected by blending California white wine and ume-based flavors of the renowned plum species cultivated in Japan. Takara Plum is a bold and complex plum wine that is ideal for serving as an aperitif or a dessert wine.
