The Sakamoto Satsuma Kurozu has been slowly fermented and aged for more than 2 years which gives the vinegar a mild aroma and a smooth and mellow taste.
This Japanese black rice vinegar is 100% natural and free of additives and colorings.
It can be used for salad dressings, sauces, seasonings and also for drinking as a health benefit.
The Sakamoto family started producing Artisan Amber Rice Vinegar in the 1800's in the Fukuyama region of Kagoshima, Japan.
This region has the optimum conditions to produce Kurozu; a warm climate for fermentation, the availability of excellent water, and the use of Satsuma ceramic jars for fermentation and aging.

I have been getting more into deeper ferments, namely shoyu and stumbled upon a video with this vinegar. I was blown away by the dedication to excellence and time honored tradition that goes into making this. What can I say, it's malty, acetic, rich and has a lingering flavor on the palate which I am kind of at loss of words for - somewhat floral but hay-like.
This and a good Shoyu are perfect companions for dipping Grilled Pacific Oysters. No need to get any fancier - this does the trick.

Amazing service from Japanese Taste - really quick courier service - to be honest postage is a little bit pricey but you pay for what you get. And I’m absolutely happy paying that extra dollar for a prompt service. It’s not easy to find this brand of vinegar in the local Japanese mart. I am glad Japanese Taste has it! Second time purchasing!

So far, I have used this vinegar as a salad dressing. I do like the subtle delicate and appealing flavour of this product. Nonetheless, I was surprised at the additional taxes/duties added to the item on arrival in Canada. So for this reason, I will not be reordering. Too expensive!
