Ume are not Plum

Friday, 13 March 2015


Ume is often mistaken for plum which is in the same group, namely Rosaceae Prunus. These two fruits have very different characteristics in which Ume has an acid content of 4-5%, compared to the 1-2% acidity found in plum. As ume fruit ripens, the level of citrus acid in the fruit overtakes that of other organic acids.


Choya Umeshu is a traditional Japanese liqueur made from ume fruit and a perfect balance between ume extract and alcohol is achieved by aging the whole fruit, with the stone still inside. The delicious tang of Umeshu comes from citric acid in the fruit, and the refreshing flavour stimulates the appetite. The addition of alcohol to the fruit during production means that the ume flavour can be extracted not only from the flesh and skin but also from the seed. It is this process which gives CHOYA Umeshu its unique fruity bouquet.


Refresh yourself by enjoying a glass of Umeshu!
