We select the finest anchovies of the harvest of the Seto inland sea, as the material of "Setouchi Olatura."

Anchovies will be salted on the same day as they are fished out of the sea so that we can keep the freshness of them. We also put sake lees that are the special key to ferment the material.

And we patiently take care of it for three years until it becomes a fine quality of "Setouchi Colatura."

The anchovy that has been caught in the Seto Inland Sea bay, salted the same day.

And ¬, wait patiently three years. Then, you the highest quality Setouchi Fish sauce. is finished.
