Umeshu is a traditional Japanese liqueur made from ume fruit. A perfect balance between ume extract and alcohol is achieved by ageing the whole fruit, with the stone still inside.
The delicious tang of Umeshu comes from citric acid in the fruit, and the refreshing flavour stimulates the appetite.
The addition of alcohol to the fruit during production means that the ume flavour can be extracted not only from the flesh and skin but also from the stone. It is this process which gives CHOYA Umeshu its unique fruity bouquet, with notes of almond and marzipan.
The Choya ‘Extra Years’ is matured for between 2-3 years and made from 100% Japanese premium Nanko ume fruit.
