Japanese traditional Umeshu (ume fruit liqueur), which is made from ume fruit (related to the Apricot fruit of the Rosaceae family).

Choya is revered through Japan for its balance of sweetness, acidity and exotic aroma with hints of marzipan.

Was first introduced to this on a month-long excursion to Japan a few years ago. Over there they use it in all kinds of forms. Umeshu-soda (Umeshu with tonic and a plum on the rocks) is popular in restaurants. It's tradition that if you've never had it before, you're supposed to try the plum in the bottom of the glass. The straight liqueur is used as a sweet cough syrup that coats the throat. More diluted versions can even be found in vending machines in cans, as well as in juice-style cardboard boxes in convenience stores! It's great stuff, and Umeshu Dento is the real thing. Here in the states, you can't find the real thing anywhere. You can find plum flavoured sake, and some brown-coloured cheap wines they call "Plum flavoured Wine" but none of them are as good as this, and do not taste like what I had in Japan. Umeshu Dento is the real thing. I still have a bottle I imported with me to save for a special occasion. So glad I found it here - I bought a case.

In Japan this is actually a health drink. But to my western palate this is an excellent drink for all occasions. The packaging is fantastic
