Established in 1823 by Kiuchi Gihei, the headman of Kounosu village, Kiuchi brewery has gained worldwide recognition for both their sake and beers.

Umeshu is known to have many health benefits including stimulating appetite and purifying the body.

Kiuchi plum wine is made from the juice of green unripened ume plums. The plums are macerated in sugar for 1 year before being marinated in Hitachino Nest White ale for its unique flavour.

Since ume contain a lot of natural citric acid, the resulting plum wine has a sweet, acidic, very refreshing taste that pairs very well with sushi, sea food, desserts and other Asian or fusion style dishes.

Enjoy on the rocks, with soda or tonic or as a delicious cocktail.
