For those that are looking for something fruity, easy-drinking and unique, look no further than Akashi Ume Plum Whisky, inspired by the traditions of Umeshu (Plum Wine). Freshly harvested, Japanese Ume (pronounced ooh-meh) sour plums are added directly to matured barrels of Akashi (white label) Whisky and aged for approximately 6-10 months depending on the season. The fruit is scooped out (yes, you can get intoxicated off of the plums!) and voilà, Akashi Ume is born. This balanced, sweet and savory whisky liqueur is a playful twist on a Japanese classic.
