Japanese apricots, like other varities found in Europe originated from China. It was planted very quickly in Japan and has been cultivated since centuries as an ornement but also to be eaten. Apricots in Japan are enjoyed fresh, dried, cooked, candied and liqueur is a standard product. Like other liqueurs from Asahara Shuzo, it is very pleasant as aperitif or light digestive, served fresh. It is also a remarkable cocktail base.
Yet there is much alcohol in the liquor! With this low filtration, this liqueur keeps all the characteristics of the fruit and it really feels like biting into a fresh apricot.
Gourmand, jammy, it evokes the flavours of fruit nectar
