Akashi-Tai Shiraume Umeshu: A Luxurious Plum Sake Liqueur for Discerning Palates

Introduction

For those seeking a unique and delightful drinking experience, look no further than the Akashi-Tai Shiraume Umeshu. This 50cl bottle from Japan offers a luxurious fusion of sake and plum, creating a flavour profile that is both sweet and sophisticated. At The General Wine Co. (www.thegeneralwine.co.uk), we're passionate about introducing our customers to exciting new beverages, and the Akashi-Tai Shiraume Umeshu is certainly one to savour.

Understanding Umeshu

Umeshu, a traditional Japanese liqueur, is crafted by steeping ume plums (also known as Japanese apricots) in sake and sugar. The result is a vibrantly flavoured drink with a distinct sweetness and a touch of tartness. Umeshu enjoys immense popularity in Japan and is gaining a well-deserved following around the world.

The Akashi-Tai Distinction

The Akashi-Tai Shiraume Umeshu takes this classic beverage to a new level. Here's what sets it apart:

  • Premium Ginjo Sake Base: This Umeshu is not made with just any sake; it boasts a base of premium Ginjo sake. Ginjo sake, known for its delicate flavour and smooth texture, elevates the entire drinking experience.
  • High-Quality Ume Plums: The meticulous use of carefully selected ume plums ensures a pure and vibrant expression of the fruit's character.
  • Meticulous Production: The plums are macerated (steeped) in the Ginjo sake for six months, allowing for a deep infusion of flavour. This is followed by a two-year ageing process in enamel tanks, resulting in a beautifully balanced and refined liqueur.

Tasting Notes

Aroma:  The first impression of Akashi-Tai Shiraume Umeshu is a captivating bouquet.  Ripe plums take centre stage, with hints of sweet cherry and a touch of marzipan complexity.

Palate:  The luxurious texture coats the tongue with a delightful smoothness.  The sweetness is present but well-balanced, complemented by a refreshing touch of acidity from the plums. Flavours of juicy plum, ripe stone fruit, and subtle hints of almond dance across the palate.

Finish:  The finish is long and lingering, leaving a pleasant aftertaste of plum and a touch of honeyed sweetness.

Food Pairing Recommendations

Akashi-Tai Shiraume Umeshu is a versatile drink that can be enjoyed in a variety of ways. Here are some suggested food pairings to bring out the best in this exquisite liqueur:

  • Appetisers:  Pair the Umeshu with light and refreshing starters. Consider smoked salmon with a creamy cheese spread, delicately flavoured sushi or sashimi, or a selection of fresh fruit skewers.
  • Desserts:  The sweet and fruity profile of the Umeshu makes it a perfect partner for desserts.  Try it with creamy panna cotta, a decadent chocolate cake, or a selection of soft cheeses with fresh fruit.
  • On its Own:  Akashi-Tai Shiraume Umeshu is also delightful on its own as an after-dinner drink or enjoyed chilled on a warm evening. Serve it in a small coupe glass or on the rocks for a refreshing twist.
