Drink Umeshu

Staff column – Our memories with Umeshu

Umeshu—as one of the famous Japanese Sakes, our staff usually drink Umeshu with friends, family and boyfriend or girlfriend, even drink alone at home. Therefore, we have some memories with Umeshu. 

In this blog, we will share some of our memories with Umeshu to you.

  • Choose Umeshu when we drink alcohol for the first time

In Japan, when you reach your 20th birthday, you can buy and drink alcohol. 

Most people who have completed the coming-of-age ceremony are already over 20 years old, so it ‘s finally time to lift the ban on alcohol !

There are many kinds of alcohol you can buy at supermarkets and convenience stores, but most of our staff chose Umeshu as their first alcohol.

Our staff think that Umeshu is one of the alcoholic beverages that is easy to drink, and it is sweet like juice. And the low alcohol content of Umeshu is just around 8%. Although there are some kinds of Umeshu which have 20% alcohol content, if you dilute Umeshu with soda, water or something else, it will be much easier for beginners to drink!

Even if one of our staff doesn’t like alcohol, she also said that she can drink Umeshu easily.

Therefore, most of our staff have memories of drinking Umeshu with other people on their 20th birthday.

One of our staff recalled what happened on that day. 

She said that she drank with 3 best friends who met in university and all of them chose to drink Umeshu cocktails which mix Umeshu with soda. Even if she and her friends drank alcohol for the first time, no one didn’t like the taste of Umeshu.So on that day, they talked about many interesting things in their university and drank delicious Umeshu at the same time. 

“I had a wonderful birthday because of Umeshu,” she said.

  • Drink Umeshu with friends at party

Umeshu is a good choice for us to chat with friends at home or outside.

And some of our staff held a party at home and made Umeshu cocktails by themselves.

They said that there are many methods of drinking Umeshu through mixing it with other drinks because the sweet and sour taste of Umeshu is suitable as a base for cocktails.And Umeshu Cocktails are so easy to make at home if you know the recipes.

Therefore, they made Umeshu Cocktails by themselves at parties and all of them consider that it is extremely wonderful if you could make a stylish Umeshu Cocktail by adding a little effort to the Umeshu you have at home.

They said that they and their friends took turns making Umeshu Cocktails for people and the happiest time at parties was when the cocktails which they made were praised by other people.

Our memories with Umeshu may remind you of something that happened when you drank Umeshu with someone.
