Made from the iconic Heiwa Shuzo Brewery, located in Wakayama, the heart of plum country, this Nigori (unfiltered) Umeshu is made with Nanko Ume local fruit. The pulp from the macerated Ume fruit is added to the Umeshu liqueur to give the liquid added texture from the fruit itself. This has a wonderful aroma of Ume, a sweet yet tart character on the palate, full body and a refreshing acidic finish. A fabulous collection of plum, honey, citrus, brown sugar, and rock candy aromas.

HEIWA brewery was named “Heiwa”, or Peace for their desire for world peace after the destruction of World War II. Built inside and around a 500-year-old temple in scenic Wakayama, the brewery is surrounded by mountains and abundant natural spring water. The brewery workers (kurabitos) form a team of young men and women, who are equally encouraged and supported the brewery owner Mr. Yamamoto to make their own brews and present their ideas as an internal friendly competition.
HEIWA is also famous for fruit infused sake made from plums, tangerines, and yuzu grown in their own orchards in the surrounding hillsides.
