The Choya Aged 3 Years 70 CL 15%

Japanese Umi Fruit Liqueur

The Choya 3 Years is an umeshu of the highest quality, made from Nanko-ume – a Japanese stone fruit which, contrary to popular belief, is not a plum but a type of apricot. The liqueur is fortified with sugar cane spirit and is allowed to age for a full 3 years, which is immeasurably long for this kind of spirit. A deep and complex umeshu that most will appreciate.

Colour: Beautiful amber gold.
Aroma: Vinous aroma with hints of plum, marzipan, citrus peel and honey.
Tasting notes: Great depth of flavor, which is also brilliantly fresh. In particular, stone fruit, honey and ripe apples stand out.

Serving suggestion: Enjoy slightly chilled.

Located in Habikino, Osaka, Choya is the world’s largest (and, in the opinion of many, the best) producer of umeshu. And what is that? Yes, umeshu is a Japanese liqueur made from the ume fruit, which belongs to the same family as plums and apricots, but has a significantly higher acid content. Choya makes many different kinds of umeshu, some completely traditional and others more innovative – but what they all have in common is that no artificial additives are ever used – neither coloring nor flavouring.

The flavor of a good umeshu comes not only from the fruit’s flesh and skin, but also from the core. Out of the hundreds of ume varieties that exist in Japan, Choya has chosen to work with only four, of which Nanko-ume from Wakayama in particular is particularly sought after, among other things, because of its high acidity.
