Product description

Akazu sushi vinegar 150ml

One element that greatly affects the taste of sushi rice is the type of vinegar used to season it. Chefs use either rice vinegar (kome-zu), red vinegar (akazu), or a blend of the two when seasoning sushi rice. 

Akazu (also called kasuzu - 粕酢) vinegar is made using sake lees (sake kasu - 酒粕) which is the solid left over from the sake production. 

Aka-zu is typically aged for three to five years, it is more expensive to produce than rice vinegar. Its reddish-black color darkens the rice.

Akazu brings a deep, flavorful, refreshing umami flavour to sushi rice. Although red-rice vinegar is already a little bit sweet, this pre-made sushi vinegar has some sugar and salt added. It has aged for 3 years.
