Product Description & Reviews

If you have not discovered authentic mirin (sweet rice wine), you are in for a treat. An exquisite, versatile seasoning, it has the unique ability to coax out and accentuate the flavors from bland or light-tasting foods. Known as one of the three essential tastes of traditional Japanese cuisine, mirin's mild sweetness balances many dishes and tones down others, such as seafoods.  Mirin adds texture and an appetizing luster to foods that are glazed. With a little experience, you can use mirin in a variety of ways to enhance both Oriental and Western styles of cooking. Japan's traditional sweetener (before white sugar took over), mirin enhances the flavors of sweet as well as savory sauces, vinaigrettes, noodle broths, simmered vegetable and fish dishes, sautées and stir-fries, fried noodles, sushi rice, marinades, and dips for tempura and sushi. The complex one-year process used to make this extraordinary mirin is overseen by Mr. Toshio Sumiya, head brew master of Sumiya Bunjiro Shoten.  The labor-intense, double fermentation and distillation methods still used by the Sumiya family today, are steeped in the history and culture of pre-industrial Japan.  More than a process, the family's work represents a way of life that, like Mikawa Mirin, is rare in the modern world.  The result of this traditional process is a sweet, thick, golden liquid that brings out the natural flavors of both sweet and savory sauces, soups, stir-fries, dips and desserts.  Authentic mirin contains only koji (natural rice culture), sweet glutinous rice, and water - surprisingly simple ingredients for such a complex, delicious, and versatile food.

Features & Highlights

  • Looking for authentic, traditionally brewed mirin? Look no further.  Mikawa Organic Mirin, brewed by the Sumiya Bunjiro Shoten company in the small coastal town of Hekinan in central Japan, is one of the last authentic mirins produced in Japan. 
  • The mirin produced by the Sumiya family became the only mirin ever to receive the coveted Diamond Award for excellence.  Their Organic Mikawa Mirin is among the finest in all of Japan and is painstakingly crafted and naturally aged over 9 months to create an unmatched gentle sweetness and a rare, magical quality that enhances and harmonizes delicate flavors.
  • Enjoy this truly authentic mirin, a treat rarely seen on store shelves outside of Japan.
