CHOYA is a Japanese company specialised in producing and selling umeshu liqueur, made from the ume fruit. Founded in 1914 by the Kondo family, the company initially focused on viticulture before starting the production of Umeshu in 1959. Every stage of the production processes is controlled, including selection, ageing and blending of ume, to ensure a consistent quality of CHOYA products. From producing brandy and grape wine, CHOYA also expanded its portfolio to offer a variety of alcoholic beverages including ume-fruit liqueur. Today, it is distributed in over 60 countries.
The CHOYA Umeshu is made without any artificial additives and takes at least one year of ageing. This careful maturation period results in its sweet, tart taste and fruity aroma with notes of almond. CHOYA offers a wide selection of beverages, categorised under several ranges such as premium quality Umeshu, original Umeshu and wine products.
