~ The masterpiece we launched to celebrate our 150th anniversary and to
pass on the culture of ‘Daiyame’ to future generations ~

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.
