Artisan Amber Rice Vinegar
The health benefits of vinegar are widely recognized and prized by many cultures. Sakamoto Kurozu may very well be the ultimate in “vinegar goodness”.
Since the 1800’s the Sakamoto Family has been producing this artisan amber rice vinegar. The unique methods and technologies used in making this vinegar have been passed down and perfected over 5 generations.
Koji rice, steamed rice and water are the only ingredients used in producing this Kurozu Product. The 3 key ingredients are slowly fermented and aged for 1-3 years in handcrafted ceramic Satsuma jars. Microorganisms that live on the inner walls on these jars are part of the process and essential to producing this very special product.
The slow fermented and aged process gives this vinegar a slight sour punch expected of vinegar but with a smooth taste. If you like or can tolerate this sourness, you should definitely be drinking this healthy vinegar. Sakamoto Kurozu is a uniquely flavored brown rice vinegar, strong and complex. This is our longest-running product on our shelves and we are happy to recommend this natural and nutritious food to our customers.
