Horikawaya Nomura is a 300-year-old soy sauce company located in Gobo City, Wakayama Prefecture. The company is currently run by an 18th generation family member. Having perfected their methods over centuries, Horikawaya Nomura still uses wood fires to make their soy sauce. The end product is is one of the finest soy sauces to be found with a sweet nose, slight smoke and a balanced umami profile. Truly one of the best (in our opinion).
