CHOYA Golden Ume Fruit
CHOYA Golden Ume Fruit. Choya is one of the most popular brands of umeshu globally, and have been making the liqueur since 1959. As part of the Virtual Travel Expo 2020, Choya sent me a bottle of their Single Year Golden Ume Fruit.
Nanko-ume from Kishu, Wakayama is allowed to age for over a year in the bottle, and remains inside (you can eat it or use it as a garnish). This ageing adds a unique golden colour to the umeshu, along with greater richness, depth & elegancy compared to the entry level umeshu.
