Toyonaga Sake Brewery was founded in 1882 in the precincts of Kumabe Yuyu in Kumamoto Prefecture – known to be 'one of the oldest land of Yayoi-style rice farming.' Today, the 4th-generation owner uses rice from their own land just as his ancestors did over a century ago (very rare for Japanese breweries).
This Umeshu is crafted with ume fruit and Toyonaga's renowned real rice shochu. Marzipan-like aromas with a rich fruit tang on the palate that overrules the sweetness. It tastes like the look on Kumamon's face.
