Story of "Nokyo" ume

"Nokyo" ume is a very precious brand of ume, grown only to specific land in Tottori Japan, and different from the other ume, grown to 5-6cm in diameter, When the ume ripens into full maturity, it's the biggest in Japan.

Its sour smell is sweetly shrouded in an open field at the season when the ume fully ripens.

Usually raw ume cannot be eaten. However, the fully ripened "Nokyo" ume can be eaten as it is.
By having had the good fortune of finding the "Nokyo" ume, we began producing the Ume Sake "Nokyo" and "Hanatenjin".

Ume Sake Liquor "No-kyo"

Ume are not plums. They are often mistaken for European plums which are in the same group of Rosaceae Prunus. However they have different features.

The "Nokyo" ume which is the main ingredient used to produce our liquor,
is also especially considered a very superior brand of ume in Japan. Small amounts are grown in specific areas in Japan. They become juicy, sweet and sour when they ripen into fully maturity.
To produce Ume Sake "Nokyo", the "Nokyo" ume is first soaked in a "Sake barrel" for several years until its flavor is well extracted in the sake. Two or more years later, when the ume flavor is well extracted from both the fruit and the seed, we remove them from the sake barrel.
This means that after this process, you can enjoy our delicious Ume Sake.
