■Core Competence

Mikawa mirin produced by the traditional production method from the Edo era
Kokonoe has inherited the quality-focused brewing method through the use of large grain size glutinous rice (suitable for brewing hon-mirin), malted rice (produced by traditional skills), and authentic shochu (Japanese white distilled liquor ? distilled carefully through brewing methods similar to refined sake brewing techniques).
Hon-mirin has outstanding elegant sweetness and taste, and a distinguished distilling aroma. As Japan’s oldest manufacturer of hon-mirin, we will continue to provide natural condiments to add flavor to dishes.
