Plum wine is a liqueur made by steeping tart plums in clear liquor (usually shochu or soju) and sugar. It’s not a true wine, as it isn’t fermented. Plum wine is popular all throughout Asia, including Japan, China, and Korea.

Some bottles include whole plums. Don’t throw them away – those booze-soaked treats are delicious!
