Strong Zero is Suntory’s alcohol upgrade of the Zero Dry line, offering an alcohol content of 7-9%. There is an ume / plum regular version, but this ripe plum seems to be a new product, a great one! It offers a very mellow flavor, almost like apple cider, and it thankfully lacks the extreme sweetness and sugar content of normal umeshu. Suntory’s -196°C Strong Zero is now my favorite series of chuuhai. This is the series to beat folks, if I have a choice, my hand will reach out for the Strong!!
