Have you ever tried Umeshu?
It’s one of Japanese traditional fruit wine, you know the name -Plum wine, by the way. Normally that alcohol degree is around 10-15%. Sounds not hard to drink, so it’s liked by ladies or young people sometimes. Umeshu is familiar alcohol as homemade one in old times, but it’s easy to buy and some kind of umeshu is based with high quality sake or Japanese liquor today.
