Heiwa Shuzo Tsuru-Ume 'Nigori' Umeshu Sake

Wakayama, Japan

A beautiful sake infused with the Nankō Ume fruit from Wakayama. The fruit is steeped in Sake for 4 months, then aged in a tank for 2 years. It is then placed in used oak barrels for further ageing of at least 8 years. This is one of the oldest wood-aged Umeshu in the market. A rich and complex example of Umeshu, this is best served chilled, in a wine glass to appreciate the intense aromas. Aromas of Ume, a sweet yet tart character on the palate, full body and a refreshing acidic finish. Great chilled on its own, or in a cocktail like a Spritz. Store in a cool place and drink for 6-8 weeks after opening.

About the maker

Established in 1928, their goal has always been to create products that reflect the landscape, climate and raw materials of their birthplace - Wakayama.

The brewery is located in a valley surrounded by mountains, blessed with high precipitation, resulting in a boundless supply of good quality soft spring water, perfect for brewing Sake. The 'Tsuru-ume' range was created to reflect the quality of the many local products available in Wakayama. Working directly with Ume & Yuzu farmers allows Heiwa Shuzo to secure some of the finest fruit in the country. Wakayama Ume represents 40% of all Ume grown in Japan and is considered the finest Ume fruit source.
