A new pure rice vinegar from Marusho made with only two ingredients: rice and koji. Brewed from Amazake, the traditional Japanese drink made from fermented rice, this is a classic, pure rice vinegar with very light, natural sweetness. The original Amazake is made with Kumano rice grown locally in Wakayama.
Excellent seasoning for rice, add sugar before adding to your sushi rice if extra sweetness is desired.
Available in 700ml
Refrigerate once open and use within 3 months.
A family business now run by the fourth generation, Marusho's vinegar brewery is located in the same building where the business began in 1879. Mud & wood walls and earthenware floors house the giant cedarwood barrels, some more than 100 years old, where the fermentation of the vinegars take place. Vinegars are made with rice grown on the family estate, water from the nearby Kumano mountains of Wakayama and only the highest quality natural ingredients. The progress of fermentation is minutely monitored by skilled craftsmen throughout the 90 - 500 day process.
