Suehiro Ponzu Sauce

150 ml bottle - Japan


Ponzu is an ingredient and finishing flavor that is truly special. 

This elevated-quality of this Ponzu has not just one or two citrus fruits, this one has four different citruses. It makes it more round, more fragrant, more surprising, the combination is just more! 

The blend brings you a combination of flavor notes that is complex yet gentle. 

To the nose it has a wonderful sweet combo-citrus whiff. Yuzu is the up front aroma. The Daidai gives it the sweetness, and if you inhale long enough and let it sit in your nostrils for a moment, you get a touch of acidity, present but not bold, from the Sudachi. It must be the Yukou that adds the gentleness and floral notes. 

When poured into a spoon the aroma fills the air with a less pronounced citrus and more of a woodsy and not quite smoky note. The taste is an unmistakable base of shoyu with complexity and a lightness of being that doesn’t overpower your taste sensors like a shoyu can. 

The color is like a medium shoyu. 

This combination of flavors is clearly well-considered, brought together just as you might bring 3 olives together to make an olive oil, tasted until it is perfectly correct. And then tasted again and again just to be sure. 

Because it is so palatable on the spoon you can imagine how you might use this to dip sushi, sashimi, vegetables or to drizzle over some soba noodles. Just the right amount of umami flavor that is emphasized by the Ma Konbu dashi that Suehiro has added. 

This is the beautiful kind of flavorful ingredient you will add today to what you didn’t think of yesterday. A touch of this Ponzu can make your day better.
