Red Plum Liqueur: Ribaishu

Ribashu by Hamamatsu Brewery

This is a fairly extraordinary liqueur that Gaijin Tonic is going to scream about when he learnss that it can be bought only at Hamamatsu Brewery shop as they only make very small amounts of it!
It is made from red plums growing in the vicinity and contains no colouring or taste additives whatsoever. Though it is fairly sweet, the fair amount of alcohol (14~15 %) makes it a solid liqueur which can be appreciated on the rocks or, like the Missus did, mixed with a dry white wine to be called “Hamamatu Kir”!
You had better reserve the next batch!
