Imojochu Imokyu Now Being Sold (Imojochu : distilled spirit made of potatoes)
Release date: 2010.01.25
Imojochu “Imokyu” has now joined the lineup of Kyushu University’s branded goods.
The commercialization of Imokyu is the result of long-term joint research between the Faculty of Agriculture of Kyushu University (Kensuke Furukawa, an emeritus professor, and others) and a liquor company. Imokyu is made with sweet potatoes to achieve a sweet and fruity scent and original flavor. Presently, it is sold only at the university co-op but is scheduled to go on sale on the Internet soon.
