SHIMAZAKI - Auzuma Umeshu 500ml

Azuma Rikishi, refreshing and light Plum Wine is made from Japanese sake and is soft and pleasant to the taste. This brewer has been in business since 1849 and they have been engaged in the production and distribution of Plum wine made from Japanese sake for the past 30 years. The second-generation family head, Shimazaki Kumakichi named this Plum Wine Azuma Rikishi, literally translated into English as Sumo Wrestler of the East, since he was a Sumo enthusiast. Only local plums (Shirakaga) are used. Neat Azuma Rikishi is refreshing. Azuma Rikishi on the rock or with soda are also recommended.

Umeshu is a Japanese liqueur made by steeping Japanese ume plums in alcohol, typically sake, and adding sugar to create a sweet and fruity liqueur. It is known for its unique flavour profile, combining the natural sweetness and tartness of the plums with a hint of alcohol.

Tasting Notes: Soft, refreshing and pleasant taste. Unripe plums are immersed in sake with a unique formulation to slowly extract the plum extract.

Perfect Food Pairings: Cheese, chocolate, Japanese cuisine, spicy foods, fruit-based desserts.
