Not really Thai, but at least it’s good!!

It seems like Thailand has more to offer than rice wine, girly mixers and beer. Today I found a rather rare Choya Umepop Umeshu plum wine. I already had a plum wine up in Chiang Rai but if you don’t go to a specialized shop or bar you can’t really find them, but luckily Kanchanaburi has a brilliantly stocked booze shop just down the main road. The small bottle was rather pricey and only had 4 percent alcohol but the clear pale yellow drink was definitely worth it. It had a sweet plumy smell that was slightly sour but very pleasant. The taste was quite nice and comes up to the Japanese plum wines I had in the UK. It had a decently sour plum taste that was refreshing and not too sweet. A pretty good drink that I absolutely prefer to any of the mix drinks I had.
