Ippongi Ginkobai Umeshu UN17 "Scent of Plum"

Four Hot Words: Plum, Semi-sweet, Smooth, & Fun

Have you ever tried a premium Japanese plum sake? No? Then what are you waiting for? If you like sweet wines and beers or, if you need something that pairs perfectly with Teriyaki or Grilled fish—then this awesome brew is for you. Rich, smooth, and well-balanced, yet sweet with a quick tart taste that smartly cleanses your palate for the next bite of food. Think green apples. Japanese plum (ever tried one? So good?) whip cream, silk if it had a taste. Not like your average plum sakes which have a heavy taste- -this sake is light as a feather. From the brewer on how they brew this established sake. “Plum sake is usually made by soaking plums and sugar into distilled alcohol, causing the taste to become thick like honey. However the process used to make Ginkobai differs from this completely. “We first wait for the plum to reach full maturity, then to extract only the pure plum juice, we press them slowly by using “SAKEFUNE” a gentle pressure machine used to normally in the production of regular sake. Next we blend this pure plum juice with sugar and Junmai sake, and it is through this that Ginkobai is able to attain its lighter flavor and elegant sake undertones.
