Shiratama Brand Whisky Umeshu 500ml
The Eigashima brewery is a heavyweight in the world of sake, shochu and whisky production, with a history that stretches back to 1679. Based in the city of Akashi in Hyogo Prefecture, Eigashima became the first brewery to obtain a license to make whisky in Japan in 1919. This birthed the famous Akashi whisky brand and led to the creation of the Shiratama umeshu whisky blend that’s all sorts of phenomenal. Made from a mixture of umeshu plume wine, Akashi whisky and sugar, the drink is bottled at 14%.
