At its heart, Kaga Sparkling Umeshu is rooted in the purity and clean taste of Kaga plum wine. Only the finest Benisashiume plums, revered for their vibrant red hue and elevated amino acid content, are chosen for this high-quality creation. Cultivated with difficulty, these plums thrive in the Hokuriku region, producing a unique umami-rich flavor and mellowness that sets them apart.
The process begins with the slow pickling of Benisashiume plums in the underground water sourced from Mt. Hakusan, a sacred mountain in the region. This meticulous method ensures that every bottle of Kaga Sparkling Umeshu encapsulates the essence of Hokuriku's pristine environment, from ume cultivation to pickling and bottling.
What makes this sparkling umeshu truly exceptional is the infusion of refreshing carbonation, tightening the pure and clean taste of Kaga plum wine. The effervescence adds a delightful twist to the traditional umeshu experience, creating a beverage that is both sophisticated and refreshing.
