Produced exclusively from Japanese-grown soybeans, wheat, and sea salt, only 100% natural, locally sourced ingredients make it into this specialty condiment. Free of additives, preservatives, artificial flavors, or colors, the deep smoky taste of this shoyu is achieved through slow smoking over fresh cherry wood. Its singular complexities and nuances of flavor come from a long fermentation period and time-tested techniques that have been passed down for generations. Combining the ancient art of shoyu with modern technology, Yugeta has managed to make an artisan smoked soy sauce that perfectly marries the old world flavor with the new.
Just outside Tokyo, in a small village in the Saitama Prefecture, the Yugeta family has been creating traditional Japanese soy sauce for close to 100 years. In 1923 they began their business, and four generations later, Mr. Yohichi Yugeta continues to keep the family tradition alive. Using many of the same techniques developed years ago, this naturally brewed shoyu has a simple list of ingredients but one of the most complex flavor profiles of any condiment. Truly a specialty item worth trying this artisan soy sauce from Yugeta Shoyu is not to be missed.
Brewed naturally, be sure to refrigerate your soy sauce after opening to preserve its singularly delicious flavor. Available for purchase singly or in bulk trays of twelve, get exactly the amounts you need right here at Gourmet Food Store!
