【ICHIBA JUNCTION】 The truly delicious vinegar from Marusho Vinegar Brewery

The vinegar which it is succeeded from generation to generation from the establishment of a business in 1879, and is particular about ancient brewing method is the vinegar by Marusho Vinegar Brewery. While it is pushed a wave of the modernization including the method to change into acid by alcohol within 24 hours, with the wooden barrel from the establishment of the business those days on, the vinegar is still made and more than approximately 150 days consistently now.

They are particular about high quality soft water and malted rice of Nachi Katsuura, Wakayama prefecture, and promote fermentation only in light coming through the window without using electricity because bacteria have a property in disfavour with light. When it is matured and manufactured, it is needed considerable adroitness in the decision and judgement from only vinegar fragrance.

Because the traditional method has very difficult temperature and humidity adjustment, long time perception is relied on. However, the taste of umami ingredients of the amino acid increases, and vinegar becomes mellow, sweetness, and full-bodied tender. Because mass production is not possible, the price does not possibly meet the major maker. However, the quality with the thorough handicraft, confidence and the pride of the craftsmen appear in vinegar.

This sanbai vinegar is really delicious! Just drizzling it over chopped cucumber and seaweed soaked in water will finish in refined vinegared food. It is not acrid-smelling at all, and the taste of dashi soup stock works well, too and is enchanted by a fragrance of the dashi soup, besides.  So I even drunk up the vinegar after eating.

Very satisfied with Kansai style light taste. Used as dipping sauce of soba noodle, but the fregrance of kombu kelp and shiitake mushtooms are pleased and appetizing which means good in summer. In addition, it works well when it is used as seasoning to Japanese simmered food, you would become a good Japanese food chef! It should be very convenient if you have one at home.
