They use only Benisashiume plums from Hokuriku, which are rich in amino acids and minerals, and make them in a simple, old-fashioned way.
This is a high-quality plum wine from Hokuriku, where the plums are cultivated, soaked, and bottled in the favorable environment of Hokuriku, where they are matured for about two years until they reach a balanced and delicious flavor.
It has been voted No. 1 in Japan in the NIKKEI Plus 1 Everything Ranking by the Nikkei , and has been offered in First Class on North American and European flights of All Nippon Airways (ANA).
It is a high-grade variety of Hokuriku's specialty, and is called "Benisashi Ume" because of the red color on the surface of the ripe fruit.
It has a higher amino acid content than other high-grade varieties, such as Nanko Ume (Japanese plum), which makes it rich in flavor and mellowness.
It is difficult to cultivate, and the same part of the branch bears fruit only once every three years, and the yield is low compared to other varieties.
