Plum wine (or Umeshu, as it is known in Japanese) is made by steeping Japanese ume plums in alcohol and sugar until the flavour of the plum has infused into the alcohol. This combination of ingredients gives umeshu a deep, sweet/sour flavour that is delicious on its own, on the rocks, or as a spritzer.
