This premium vinegar is made in Aya, in Miyazaki Prefecture, which is a beautiful village surrounded by laurel forests and famous for its pure water. Using the traditional manufacturing method that hasn't changed since 1945, organic brown rice and black jiuqu, which is grown in the rich nature of Aya, is brewed with Aya's famous water.

The vinegar is slowly fermented in large clay jars (sangoku wagame); a process that has been used in the production of our Yamadai black vinegar since the brewery's foundation in 1930. Giant jars have a mild retention, and are rich in natural organic acids and amino acids, nurturing a mellow taste. The vinegar is  matured for over a year in these jars, using only the power of the sun and nature.

Along with using if for marinades, dressings, and cooking, you can drink about 1 small sake sized "choko" cup every day for your health. 100ml of Aya organic wholegrain rice black vinegar premium contains 1,397mg of amino acid.

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design.

We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.

Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.
