Ota Shuzo 'Dokan' Umeshu 720ml
Umeshu and yuzushu have got to be the drinks of the Summer if you ask us! Just add some soda or Prosecco and you have a hell of a refreshing drink.
This Dokan Umeshu was made by infusing a 1 year old sake with green plums until release, giving this umeshu a depth of flavour often not seen in other brands.
Most of the ume used are the Nankobai variety sourced from Wakayama Prefecture along with some Fukui ume from Fukui Prefecture. Both of these prefectures are famous for their ume varieties with Nankobai and Fukui Ume being the most sought after for making beautifully flavoured umeshu. The Ota Umeshu is completely additive free with no additional colour, aromas, flavours or acids added, and relies purely on great ingredients and technique.
Ōta are comparatively conservative with the sugar they add to their umeshu as they want to achieve a drink that has the deliciously tart Ume flavours balanced by moderate sweetness. The flavour is enhanced by beautiful sweet marzipan & stewed fruit aromas.
