JW360° Nomono Umeshu & Sakes For The Festivities | CoolJapan

Say ‘Kampai’ To The Holidays With Our Beverage Picks

Bottoms up!

What are celebrations without a couple of alcoholic beverages? With the festivities coming up, it’s only fitting to stock up on your drink supply — or better yet, prepare some as gifts for friends — to get ready for clinking glasses (whether in person or at virtual parties) in the midst of your hearty holiday feasts. And where better to get the best Japanese beverages to say ‘kampai’ to this Christmas season than our picks from JW360° Nomono?

The best source for specialty snacks, food products, and of course, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages from various regions of Japan, JW360° Nomono’s thoughtfully curated range for the overseas market is also available at their retail store in Jewel Changi. From umeshu to sakes of all sorts, here’s what we think you should look out for there.

Nakano BC Temari Umeshu in 5 Flavours

A flavourful life is a favourable life. Spice up your life with some extra flavours – five, to be exact – with the Nakano BC Temari Umeshu. Available in Original, Matcha, Yuzu, Orange and Honey, this beverage is perfect for sharing with family and friends who have varying palates. This particular drink uses nanko-ume — a premium variety of plum harvested from Wakayama that has just the right balance of sweet and citrusy flavours — making it great to be enjoyed either ‘on the rocks’ or mixed as cocktails.

This beverage also has lesser calories as compared to beer or wine, a great companion for all the indulgent meals that you will have during the holidays. Umeshu is also known to contain no sulfites, tannins, nor histamines — the usual causes of the alcohol buzz — allowing you to steer clear from hangovers. Did we mention that each label on the bottle comes with cute illustrations that are perfect for the ‘gram too?

Niigata Shupoppo Sake

If you’re up for some well-rounded sake flavour, a bottle of Niigata Shupoppo Junmai-Ginjo Sake would definitely be worth your consideration. Brewed with the same standards as Niigata Seishu (a refined sake category), Niigata Shupoppo made their sake even better through four different breweries, which produce four different variants that are elevated in terms of aromas and flavour profiles.

ROKKA Sake Cup Set & MARUYA Canned Seafood Special Set

‘Cup Sake’ has been a traditional invention in Japan for over 40 years, created to make the beverage easy to take around and drink anywhere. Some people also collect these ‘cups’ from various regions as memorabilia. Take the ‘cup sake’ experience home with you and enjoy the taste of Japan in a cup — or share it with your Japanophile friends who might be missing Japan at this moment — with the ROKKA Sake Cup Set & MARUYA Canned Seafood Special Set.

Each set comes with three different sakes in a cup — Junmai, Ginjo, and Honjozo – each featuring a Shinkansen design showcasing routes connecting Tokyo to Hokkaido, truly making it a great gift idea for this gifting season. While you’re at it, complement your cup sake with a delectable snack – there’s the Maruya Canned Boiled Oyster with Soy Sauce & Ginger, and the Maruya Canned Boiled Salmon with Oyster Sauce. These ready-to-eat snacks are perfect for those who love their oysters and salmons but don’t know how to cook them to match a good cup of sake.

Get the deal: Use code JW360SAKE at checkout to get the ROKKA Sake Cup Set & MARUYA Canned Seafood Special Set – which consists of one set cup sake (worth SGD40.70) and two can snacks (worth SGD12.50 and SGD9.50 separately) – at SGD56.50 (worth SGD62.70, save 10 per cent). Every purchase comes with an SGD10 Nomono retail voucher.
