The fun part about making umeshu at home is you get to choose which liquor to use as ingredient and how the taste differs depending on it.
Here's the basic information about the taste difference:
Shochu (white liquor):
This is the standard ingredient for umeshu. Since shochu has no smell nor taste, you can enjoy fully the flavor of plum. This also gives you the option to mix umeshu with tea or juice.
The main characteristic of making umeshu with brandy is that it can brew quicker than any others. That "brandyness" mixes well with sweetness of plum, making it mellow and delicious. The sake mania's favorite is this one. If you would like to try the refreshing umeshu, decrease the amount of candy rock.
When you make umeshu with Japanese sake, we recommend to decrease the amount of candy rock to fully enjoy the sake flavor. Compared to others, umeshu made from Japanese sake is refreshing because the refreshing plum flavor matches well with the sweetness from rice. We recommend to mix umeshu on the rock or with soda.
