Quantity: Qty:

A well-established sake brewer with 112 years in business and products praised at international competitions has paired "ryukyo koume" Japanese plums grown in the Ina Basin at the foot of the Minami Alps mountains with a sake base, creating a Plum liqueur called "Imanishiki Plum liqueur". The ryukyo koume raised in Nakagawa Village, a local town and member of the The Most Beautiful Villages in Japan network, have a distinctive thick and high quality flesh despite their small size. The base sake is made from the superb spring waters of the foot of the Minami Alps mountains and locally-grown brewing rice using the time-intensive traditional "Skafuneshibori" method to extract the liquid drop by drop. The Japanese plum pits are extracted by hand one a time and the flesh is carefully added to the sake, which has a clean and pure taste with no off flavors, to make this Plum liqueur. The taste balances sake, Japanese plums, and sugar for a rich and mellow flavor.

[About "Imanishiki"]
The name "Imanishiki" comes from an ancestor of the sake brewer, who was an amateur sumo wrestling Yokozuna (Grand Champion) and used it as his wrestling stage name. This sake is brewed using traditional "Sakafuneshibori" combined with the latest technology using local sake rice grown on land blessed with the natural environment and good quality spring water of the Southern Alps.
