TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Aged for three to five years, The CHOYA Aged 3 Years is a plum wine that has citrus and plum aromas, with hints of apricot and honey. It gives complex flavor with notes of dark fruit, honey, cloves, and candied lemon. This distilled liquor has a surprisingly dry finish.

PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS

A classic umeshu, you can drink the CHOYA Aged 3 Years neat, or on the rocks. Enjoy it with a soft cheese, and nuts. Another suggestion, though unorthodox, is to pair it with deep-fried chicken. The crispness of the plum wine balances out the flavors of the fried chicken surprisingly well.

DISTINCTLY JAPANESE

Umeshu is a Japanese liquor made with ume plums. The plums, while still unripe, are steeped in liquor and sugar.

CHOYA is a company that prides itself in making top quality umeshu. Using only Wakayama Nanko ume, a premium variety that has a plump flesh and high acidity, their umeshu takes at least a year of aging.

Aging the whole fruit (including stone inside) gives umeshu the perfect balance between the plum extract and the alcohol.

Store your bottle upright in a cool, dark place, ideally between 15 and 20°C. Do not refrigerate, as this liquor loses its aroma and flavor with cold. Unopened bottles can last for an indefinite amount of time, but the closer you get to the bottom third of the bottle, please consume quickly to prevent oxidation and taste alteration.
