Japanese refreshing sweet/sour plum sake
Yuzu, the Japanese citrus fruit so popular recently in Western restaurants, now as a refreshing drink based on sake. Consisting for 50% of pure and sour yuzu juice, this yuzu-sake is extremely refreshing and completely cleans your palate. Drink on a hot sunny afternoon, as an aperitif, to go with a dessert, as a surprising ingredient of a cocktail, or whenever you need a refreshing kick. Serve ice-cold, either straight or on-the-rocks, to have the best balance between sweet and sour.
Perfect for a warm summerday!
Heiwa Shuzo (Peace Brewery) was founded in 1928 and is located just outside Kainan City in Wakayama. The site where the brewery is located was a temple for over 500 years before the brewery was established. It wasn't until 1957 when Sake production commenced full-time. The brewery is located in a valley surrounded by mountains, blessed with high precipitation, resulting in a boundless supply of good quality soft spring water, perfect for brewing Sake.
The 'Tsuru-ume' range was created to reflect the quality of the many local products available in Wakayama. Working directly with Ume & Yuzu farmers allows Heiwa Shuzo to secure some of the finest fruit in the country. Wakayama Ume represents 40% of all Ume grown in Japan and is considered the finest Ume fruit source. Citrus fruit such as lemon, yuzu and Mikan are also grown locally and used to make products in the 'Tsuru-ume' range.
