Kikkoman Manjo Aji-Mirin Cooking Wine

Unlike mirin—the sweet liquor used for cooking and drinking—Aji-Mirin contains a mere fraction of the alcohol. It does, however, retain the same brightening sweetness and rich umami from its base of fermented sticky rice. Use this salted and seasoned rice wine to add depth to your Japanese dishes, whether they be teriyaki, sukiyaki, or even tempura!

What Is Mirin?

Mirin is a Japanese cooking wine that is used in many Japanese recipes. Like sake, mirin is also made of rice, but has a much lower alcohol content and a higher sugar content which gives it a sweet taste.

How To Cook With Mirin

It’s frequently used in dishes that have saltier sauces with soy sauce or tamari bases, because the sweet flavor contrasts well with the salty flavor of the sauce: think teriyaki sauce. The high sugar content in mirin helps to tenderize meat and add a glossy finish to sauces, making it a great addition to marinades.
