Durian... Wine!

My colleagues are going crazy over durian all of a sudden and there's a special Whatsapp chat group all about organising an event (yeah, totally agree that Whatsapp should be used for this and not for work!). For no apparent reason, I went to search for fermented durian and came across a Time article about a university in Singapore having created durian wine years back.
Just in time for this year’s durian season, a research group at the National University of Singapore’s Food Science and Technology Programme has announced that it has cultivated a clear durian wine with 6% alcohol.
And even, papaya wine.
Those not brave enough to stomach durian wine might consider papaya wine, which the team has also been cultivating over the past five years and expects to be more widely accepted.
