Made by Ito Shoten

Founded over 200 years ago in Aichi Prefecture, Ito Shoten produces artisanal tamari using traditional methods. Currently run by the spry 85-year old Ito-san (ninth generation) and his grandson (eleventh generation), Ito Shoten’s tamari is aged for three years. 

Ito Shoten’s tamari is gluten-free but it wasn’t designed to be that. True tamari is the liquid you get when you press miso. This region, Aichi Prefecture, is known for very dark, rich miso.
