MIZUNARA WHISKEY BARREL AGED SHOYU


Haku Mizunara Whisky Barrel Aged Shoyu...$23.99 / 375ml
Sublime, mellow and flawless, this extraordinary ingredient from Kyoto Prefecture is truly exceptional. Haku Mizunara Whisky Barrel Aged Shoyu is first traditionally brewed preserving ancestral methods of the mushiro koji process yielding an exceptional shoyu. Their master craftsmen then thoughtfully age the shoyu in Japenese Whisky Barrels made from Mizunara hard wood, a type of Japanese oak. The result is a mellow, delicate shoyu with a touch of sweetness that stimulates all of the senses.


"Shoyu is a soy sauce, which is a dark brown liquid made from soya beans that have undergone a fermentation process. Natural shoyu employs the use of a centuries-old method of fermentation involving a special koji (Aspergillus oryzae), which converts hard-to-digest soy proteins, starches and fats into easily absorbed amino acids, simple sugars and fatty acids. Most commercial shoyu is made by a chemical process in which cereals and soybeans are mixed with acids.

Depending on the ingredients there are different types of soy sauces: - shoyu: this soy sauce is mixture of soya beans and wheat - tamari: this soy sauce is only made from soya beans
Shoyu is the foundation of Japanese cuisine, it is the essential ingredient. Shoyu is the most important condiment used to flavour food and also used to cook with. Shoyu can be found in most grocery stores (Asian food section) or in health stores. Shoyu can be stored at room temperature for up to one year." -- Soya
