William Adams, known in Japanese as Anjin Miura, was an English navigator who arrived in Japan in 1600 via the Dutch ship De Liefde. Adams helped establish English and Dutch trading posts for the East India Company in Hirado. In his lifetime, he built such respect with the Japanese people that they named a rose after him. And to commemorate the 400th anniversary of his death, this Anjin rose-flavoured umeshu was made in his honour.
Rose-flavoured sake with four hundred years of history.
