From the Importer: Bright plum notes with hints of apricot, raisin jam, and honey. Smooth and sweet with a touch of acidity on the finish.
For those that are looking for something fruity, easy-drinking and unique, look no further than Akashi Ume Plum Whisky, inspired by the traditions of Umeshu (Plum Wine). Freshly harvested, Japanese Ume (pronounced ooh-meh) sour plums are added directly to matured barrels of Akashi (white label) Whisky and aged for approximately 6-10 months depending on the season. This balanced, sweet and savory whisky liqueur is a playful twist on a Japanese classic.
Akashi Ume can be sipped neat, on the rocks, served with soda or can be used as a modifier for cocktail recipes that calls for simple syrup or liqueurs. It's great for novice drinkers as well as experimental mixologists and everyone in between.
