Premium Saishikomi (Four Year-Aged) Soy Sauce "Kajita Yasutsugu”, 5 floz
Saishikomi shoyu refers to a type of soy sauce that’s brewed twice, naturally exhibiting an intense, umami-rich flavor and distinct aroma. Kajita Shoten’s Premium Saishikomi (Four Year-Aged) Soy Sauce “Kajita Yasutsugu” is an exceptional quality example of this kind. It was born from the passion of Kajita Shoten’s 13th generation president, who wanted to brew a soy sauce that genuinely represented the tastes and natural environment of Ozu, their home in Ehime Prefecture. They first spend two years brewing and aging a robust soy sauce made using soybeans and barley grown by their local contract farmers. Then they spend another two years to brew it once more, with additional koji, and age it further to increase the concentration of amino acids, slowly and naturally. The result is a surprisingly rich and deep flavor with a clean aftertaste. Its luxurious taste can complement any cuisine, Japanese and non-Japanese alike, but it is particularly great with fatty, strong-flavored ingredients.
You can simply substitute your regular soy sauce with Premium Saishikomi (Four Year-Aged) Soy Sauce “Kajita Yasutsugu” to enjoy its rich, multilayered flavor and deep aroma. Because of these remarkable characteristics, the soy sauce goes particularly well with fatty, robust-flavored dishes—try it with steak, barbecue, yakitori skewers, or grilled eel. Also amazing about this soy sauce is that its aroma stays strong even after being heated, so don’t hesitate to use it for stir-frying, simmering, or glazing. Since it’s made with traditional methods and without additives, it is best stored in a dark place at a room temperature before use, and refrigerated once opened.
