Kikkoman shoyu dark soy sauce is Kikkoman’s original, naturally brewed soy sauce. Intense and salty, the soy sauce is an indispensable seasoning in Japanese cuisine. Use as a dipping sauce for sushi and sashimi, as an umami-rich base for sauces, soups and stocks, or in stir fries and salad dressings.

This one litre bottle is ideal for anyone cooking Japanese cuisine on a regular basis, and is an essential ingredient when making shoyu ramen.

Kikkoman’s story begins with the Mogi family in the 17th century. They began producing soy sauce in the town of Noda, on the banks of the River Edo. Dutch traders brought the soy sauce to Europe, where it took the World Expos by storm in Vienna and Amsterdam in the late 19th century. Today, this official supplier of soy sauce to the Japanese imperial court still uses natural brewing methods and is now a popular choice all over the world. The name Kikkoman derives from the Japanese words ‘kikko’ meaning turtle shell and ‘man’ which is the number 10,000. This comes from a Japanese legend where turtles are symbolic of longevity – the legend says they live for 10,000 years – success and happiness, qualities that the company also strives to embody.

Ingredients: water, soybeans, wheat, salt, ethyl alcohol. Contains allergens: soya, gluten (wheat).
