Nakano BC Honey Umeshu: Elegant and Rounded Flavor

What Makes Nakano BC Umeshu Special?

Plums are fast-growing, and one of the factors that bring out the best flavour of plum wine is to pickle them as quickly as possible to maintain their fruity and freshness. Nakano BC is located in Kainan City, Wakayama Prefecture, and takes advantage of local processing, washing and soaking to remove the harsh taste from the fruit picked in the morning as soon as it arrives, and pickling it on the same day as it is purchased.

In order to extract all the tasty parts of the plums, Nakano BC employs a unique method of staged preparation. As soon as the ume arrive at the brewery, they are sorted by hand, rinsed, soaked and pickled. About two months after pickling, the soaking liquid is added again for pickling. Umeshu is tasted repeatedly by the brewing master, who decides when to remove the fruit. About one year after pickling, the product is finally ready.

Ume and Honey Combination Creates an Elegant and Rounded Flavor

A honey umeshu with a mild sweetness of orange honey that harmonizes perfectly with the sweetness and sourness of the plum, creating an elegant and rounded flavor. Its mellow taste - not possible with the sweetness of umeshu alone - comes from the perfect harmony created between the mellow sweetness of honey and the sweetness and tartness of umeshu. 

As it is very easy to drink, even people who normally give drinking a wide berth could well enjoy this product.
