Harugako Umeshu 70cl
The “Harugako Umeshu” is produced in Xinyi Township, Nantou County, Taiwan, renowned as the “Plum Village.” It carefully selects locally grown pesticide-free plums from orchards that yield rich fruity aromas when they reach a ripeness level of 7 to 8. These plums are then fermented in barrels, blending them with specially selected Tainan No. 16 Yueguang rice, which undergoes two rounds of distillation to create a refined base. The infusion is further enriched by soaking in the pristine, high-quality water sourced from the upstream area of the Chan-Yu-Lan Creek.
This meticulous process results in a subtly sweet, smooth, and clear plum liqueur with a delicate acidity. Its harmonious and elegant plum fragrance, along with its exceptional taste, leaves a lingering impression on the palate. Notably different from typical commercially available Japanese plum liqueurs, “Harugako Umeshu” possesses a captivating and alluring character with a hint of sourness amidst its sweet ripeness. It showcases a unique and distinctive plum aroma and flavour, prioritizing quality by refraining from adding souring agents, sweeteners, or caramel coloring. This liqueur embodies the robustness of plums nurtured by the pure climate of Taiwan, offering an intoxicating and refined experience that deserves to be savoured.
