Buy authentic aged soy sauce | Japanese soy sauce
Soy sauce is absolutely central to Japanese cuisine. This fermented soybean condiment is used to add umami, or simply as a dipping sauce. From light soy sauce and white soy sauce, to more dark soy sauce and even smoked soy sauce, we have a wide range of high-quality products. Browse our other soy sauce options too, such as wheat-free tamari shoyu or citrussy yuzu soy.
For something extra special, try Kamebishi’s premium-grade aged Japanese soy sauces, crafted from fermented soybeans and organic wheat. The flavour and balance relies on the exact replication of a 250-year-old process, diligently overseen by the Okada family - right up to the 17th generation of today.
Whole soybeans are steamed and naturally inoculated with mushiro-koji mould, before being mashed with roasted wheat (unlike Chinese soy sauces). They then undergo further ageing in 100-year-old cedar barrels. All production is still carried out in the old samurai house where the family began the business in 1753.
