About GINSEI YAMAZUKE – Selected wild salmon, Traditional process
“YAMAZUKE” is a type of process in salting fish taken over from age to age. Pile up fishes like a mountain and salt them down with using stone weight. The flavor of fish will be matured and the taste will be turned into deeper by letting extra water out.
The name “YAMAZUKE” (YAMA=mountain, ZUKE=salt down) comes from a scene of this process.
*Through the process to be matured, extra water in GINSEI will evaporate, and the weight will be reduced down from 4kg to 2.5kg before and after.
Our “GINSEI YAMAZUKE” is made with selected sake, also made carefully by hands in every step of the process.
“GINSEI”, a brand of sake in Hidaka, is covered with plenty of salt in traditional wooden frame that has been used since the company’s established year. After salting down for enough long time, sake will be sunk in water to get rid of extra salt then, will be let cold air-dry. Very characteristic cold winds at Erimo cape enhance GINSEI YAMAZUKE’s taste into deeper and special.
Maruden’s YAMAZUKE is splendid and traditional taste made with maximizing distinctive weather of Erimo cape.
