Niigata Meijo-Umeshu

Niigata Meijo is located in Ojiya in the central region of Niigata Prefecture 150 miles north of Tokyo. A fertile valley for rice farming surrounded by snow-covered mountains in winter, the environment is ideal for sake production. The company’s brewery has produced sake and distributed other wholesale beverages for 70 years.

Yuyu Umeshu is a Japanese plum wine produced by Niigata Meijo, a brewery located in the Niigata prefecture of Japan. The word "umeshu" translates to "plum wine" in English, and it is a popular alcoholic beverage in Japan.

Niigata Meijo's Yuyu Umeshu is made from high-quality plums, which are picked at the peak of ripeness and then steeped in a blend of shochu, a traditional Japanese distilled spirit, and sweet sake. The mixture is then left to age for several months, during which time the plums impart their flavor and fragrance to the liquid. The resulting Yuyu Umeshu is a sweet and fruity drink with a delicate balance of tartness and alcohol content. It has a rich aroma and a smooth, refreshing taste, making it a popular drink to enjoy on its own or as a mixer in cocktails.

Yuyu Umeshu is typically enjoyed chilled or on the rocks, and it pairs well with a variety of Japanese dishes, including sushi, tempura, and yakitori. It is also a popular drink to enjoy during the summer months, as its light and fruity flavor is refreshing in hot weather.
