"Daiyame" is a honkaku shochu (single-distilled shochu) made from sweet potato, originating from Hamada Syuzou Distillery Kagoshima. In 2019, it has won the top prize in the Shochu Distilled spirits category at the 2019 International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC) in London. In 2020, it has won the double gold award in the shochu category at International Spirits Challenge (ISC).
This shochu has a fruity aroma (lychee), similar to that of wine and can be enjoyed chilled with carbonated water & lemon. Interestingly, this award-winning "Daiyame" Shochu is also available at the bar section of a 5-star luxury hotel, Hotel de Crillon, located in France, Paris, Place de la Concorde !
The traditional imo shochu is made from the ‘Koujuku-imo’ we developed using our original technology. You will be surprised as the fragrant aroma (like that of lychee) fills your mouth. The product features a sweet and mellow taste and a crispy aftertaste. The design concept is to make it possible to enjoy the fragrant aroma and the meal together from the beginning to end. The aroma becomes more intense when diluted with strong carbonated water.
‘Koujuku-imo’ ・・・ We developed it independently by multiplying the components which bring out an abundant amount of aroma. DAIYAME is marked by a fragrance like that of fresh lychee coming from the monoterpene alcohol (MTA) contained in large amounts in Koujuku-imo.
Made in Japan.
