Shobun vinegar brown rice vinegar is a representative that has been made using a special jar since its establishment more than 300 years ago, using the manufacturing method that has been handed down by oral tradition. It is a product.

Since liquor is fermented in a cool environment and vinegar is fermented in a warm environment, the jars used when fermenting brown rice vinegar are half buried in the ground. The underground is cool so you can make good sake, and the above-ground part is warm so you can make good vinegar. Convection is created in the jar and fermentation progresses slowly.
