This gorgeous soy sauce is light yet well-balanced, boasting a mild saltiness punctuated by sweet fruity notes of flavor. Nama is the Japanese term for unpasteurized, but in this case, it also means 100% organic! A gorgeously hued rose-colored shoyu, it delivers big flavor, and what’s more, it’s traditionally brewed using locally grown soybeans, wheat, and salt. Even the water is sourced from a local natural spring. For a delicious as well as wholesome option, try this sensational shoyu from Japan’s historic soy sauce brewery Yamaki Jozo.
Founded in 1902 in Saitama Prefecture, outside of Tokyo, Yamaki Jozo produces its traditionally brewed sauce using only premium, Japan-grown ingredients. Located at the foot of a mountain that provides the brewery with pristine spring water, the setting is truly idyllic, and the resulting shoyu with its incredible coloring and flavor reflects that. Made using traditional methods that have been passed down for over a century, Yamaki Jozo ferments their shoyu in large cedar vats. Using nothing more than pesticide-free soybeans, wheat, locally sourced sea salt, and the aforementioned spring water, they let time do the work, using a slow fermentation process that takes upwards of two years. This attention to detail and quality results in a soy sauce that remains unparalleled in terms of its nuanced flavor profile and its aromatic full-bodied finish. Presented annually as a gift to the emperor of Japan, this soy sauce will make an incredible addition to your kitchen.
