THE CHOYA STORY

CHOYA was founded in 1914 and is exported to more than 60 countries. According to IWSR data, CHOYA is among the top liqueur producers in world and is Japan’s TOP ume liqueur producer.  CHOYA never uses artificial additives in any of our products, such as acidulants, flavourings, or colourings.

 

UMESHU

Umeshu is a traditional Japanese liqueur made from ume fruit. A perfect balance between ume extract and alcohol is achieved by aging the whole fruit, with the stone still inside. The delicious tang of Umeshu comes from citric acid in the fruit, and the refreshing flavour stimulates the appetite. Umeshu also contains malic and succinic acids. It takes at least one year of aging to produce CHOYA Umeshu. This careful maturation ensures that essential ingredients can be fully extracted from the ume fruit. This slow aging process allows CHOYA to produce authentic Umeshu with the best possible taste and aroma every time.
