Description Black rice vinegar Kombu Kurozu

Japanese black rice vinegar, called "Kurozu", is made from rice in fact from brown rice. By adding Kombu the black rice vinegar gets an even more intense umami taste. In addition, this Kombu Kurozu has been seasoned with other ingredients, which gives it a very complex, slightly sweet taste.

The name "black rice vinegar" already suggests that the vinegar has a dark colour.

About the manufacturer

Marusho was founded in the late Edo period in 1879 and has been producing since then finest Japanese vinegar and ponzu. Soft water from the Kumano Mountains, which they use for brewing is of particular importance to Marusho for the quality of their products. The vinegars are aged traditionally in wooden barrels made from Kumano cedar trees. In the 80s of the last century they had contact with Michio Kushi, a Japanese nutritionist who shaped the macrobiotic movement.
