  • Description


Ao “Green” Ume is essentially refers to un-riped plum, which is most commonly used in the preparation of Umeshu (梅酒). Fortunately or unfortunately, it is available for a fleeting few weeks every year.


  • Fresh Ao Ume, with the option to add on koorizatou 糖 (Japanese Rock Sugar) or our favourite spirit used, thus far
  • Availability: early Summer (usually in early June, for a period of 2 weeks, but 2023 is proving to be a hot year)
  • Preparation method: steeped in white liquor with rock sugar (you’ll get some nice earthy flavours in your homemade Umeshu 自製梅酒)
  • Note: for the whole box orders, add ons comprise of 1 x Japanese Rock Sugar (Koorizatou 氷砂糖), or 1 x Singleton 12 Years Single Malt, or both (1kg of rock sugar and 1 btl of Singleton 12). This allows you to experiment with different spirits and sugars!
