Mirin is a common staple used in Japanese cooking. It’s a type of rice wine, similar to sake, but with a lower alcohol and higher sugar content. Mirin has a sweet flavour, which makes it a nice contrast when used with saltier sauces, like soy or tamari. It has a golden to light amber colour and a slightly thick consistency. KOYO Mirin is an outstanding seasoning adding sweetness and savory taste to your dishes, and is essential for Japanese Cuisine.
