Shochu Potato Kuro Koji
Manseo “Black Koji making” is a dish boasting of the mellowness peculiar to black koji. It is a cup that heals the daily fatigue, with no ornament of ‘Big Black’ loaded with good sweet potato and black koji.
Shōchū (焼酎) is a Japanese distilled beverage less than 45% alcohol by volume. It is typically distilledfrom rice (kome), barley (mugi), sweet potatoes(satsuma-imo), buckwheat (soba), or brown sugar(kokutō), though it is sometimes produced from other ingredients such as chestnut, sesame seeds, potatoes or even carrots.
Typically shōchū contains 25% alcohol by volume, which is weaker than whisky or standard-strength vodka but stronger than wine and sake. It is not uncommon for multiple-distilled shōchū, which is more likely to be used in mixed drinks, to contain up to 35% alcohol by volume.
