More than just Umeshu and Yuzushu

More than just Umeshu and Yuzushu

Umeshu and Yuzushu are part of Japan's culture and tradition, well liked by many people in Japan and over the world.


At J Passport, we take pride in our selection of umeshu and yuzushu, which we believe stand out in terms of taste and quality compared to other liqueurs we have tried.


Our selection process takes into consideration the quality of the base alcohol and the fruits used, which are crucial factors to the quality.

About the Sesame Shochu



Normally breweries use distiller shochu, but here for the umeshu, signature sesame shochu to achieve a better form and to stand out from other umeshu! Legends have it that the world’s first distilled liquor made from sesame seeds is from this brewery. With the influence of western liquor, they carefully crafted sesame shochu to create a fragrant liquor that is on par with western liquor on a national level.
