The Kaga Umeshu from Manzairaku Sake Kura is one of the most awarded Umeshus in Japan. It has an intense fruit aroma and a refreshing, clear taste. Only Benisashi Ume are used, which are rich in amino acids and minerals and have a nice umami taste. It is produced in Ishikawa Prefecture.


Umeshu is probably the most traditional liqueur in Japan. Every family has its own secret recipe for it. The umeshu is often called a plum, but botanically it is an apricot. Only the Benisashi Ume is used for Kaga Umeshu. This particular variety grows only in Kanazawa City (Ishikawa Prefecture) and in the neighbouring Fukui Prefecture. "Beni" means "red" and "sashi" means "shine". So the name stands for the deep red and bright colour of the ripe Ume. The ripe fruits of Benisashi Ume have more amino acids than other high quality Ume species (Nankounai Ume). Due to the higher proportion of amino acids, Benisashi Ume has a milder aroma and an intense umami taste. The Kaga Umeshu is produced according to a traditional technique. It matures over two years and has a clear and rich umami flavour.

The Manzairaku Kaga Umeshu has already won several awards and is served on all first class flights of the airline ANA (All Nippon Airways), among others. It has also been served as a digestif at the Nobel Prize reception.

This liqueur is an ideal aperitif and digestif, and can be enjoyed straight, on ice or with soda. Kaga Umeshu is also very good in cocktails.
