Marusho’s use of Kumano cedar barrels to ferment their rice vinegar provides a very distinct flavor. This vinegar is lightly seasoned with amazake and mirin, so it has light sweetness, but it is also very lean and crisp in flavor.
Ingredients: glutinous brown rice, rice, amazake (rice koji, rice), mirin (starch, rice, brewing alcohol, water, rice koji)
Since 1879 Marusho has been using traditional methods to brew rice vinegar in the seaside town of Nachi-Katsuura in Wakayama Prefecture. Using locally-grown rice and water from their private well, Marusho brews their vinegar in 12 ancient Japanese cedar barrels - each one named after a Japanese sumo yokozuna (champion).
