This product is currently sold out.
Premium Black Soybean Soy Sauce (Ki-ippon Kuromame Syoyu) is hand crafted by Yuasa Soy Sauce Ltd. in Wakayama prefecture in Japan. The town of Yuasa is the traditional home and birth place of Japanese soy sauce, tracing its history back over 750 years. Yuasa Soy Sauce Ltd. strives to keep traditional practices of soy sauce production alive because of their dedication to excellence, and desire to introduce the world to what soy sauce should taste like. A good soy sauce, much like a good wine, requires patience, delicacy and high quality ingredients. Premium Black Soybean Soy Sauce is naturally fermented in cedar barrels for up to 24 months. This contrasts greatly with the recent trend of partial fermentation, lasting less than half a year. Yuasa Soy Sauce Ltd.'s soy sauce is made by hand, using traditional techniques and includes only the highest quality, Japan-produced ingredients. They use local Yuasa water, from which Japanese soy sauce was originally created, as well as natural sea salt from around the Goto Islands of Kyusyu. They also use the highest quality black soybeans (kuromame) from the Tanba region of Hyogo. The use of black soybeans in soy sauce, as detailed in recipe books dating back to around 500 AD, gives their product an added rich, unique flavor. Use Premium Black Soybean Soy Sauce as you would other soy sauces, in cooking or dipping, but be prepared for a new level of culinary expectation. When using their Premium Black Soybean Soy Sauce, as with a fine wine, you will enjoy the depth and clarity of the colour, experience the fragrant aroma and savor the premium taste.
