Tankai Vinegar Brewery

Tankaisu Black Vinegar

Tankai Vinegar is a vinegar brewery located in Takashima City, Shiga Prefecture.

As the only vinegar brewery that still remains in Shiga

Tankai Vinegar reproduces the manufacturing method of the Edo period based on ancient documents. They manufacture and sell naturally brewed vinegar by static fermentation using sake as a raw material. They use the old-fashioned method to make vinegar that anyone can drink with peace of mind without adding extra additives. It is the only local vinegar brewery in Shiga prefecture.

200 years of history and tradition

The history of Tankai Vinegar dates back to the Edo period. The Yoshinoya clan, a former Omizo feudal lord who owned Omi Takashima, was dedicated to the brewing industry of sake, soy sauce, vinegar, etc. One of them, Yazo, the second son of Bunjiro Yoshinoya (Yoshifumi), split his family at the end of the Meiji era and started brewing vinegar.

In 1955, the second generation Yazo established Tankai Vinegar Co., Ltd. under the registered trademark Tankaisu (淡海酢) "Tankai Vinegar".

The vinegar that had been extinguished for a while due to the control during World War II was revived, and the skill and heart of vinegar brewing have been handed down to the third generation today.


No additives or preservatives are added. Preserving the tradition from the Edo period, Tankai Vinegar continues to make vinegar that anyone can drink with peace of mind.


Fragrant Black Vinegar

Black vinegar is made by aging barley malt that has a rich and fragrant aroma, so you can enjoy a rich flavor from the vinegar. For drinking, dilute the vinegar 5 to 10 times.


Black Vinegar With Static Fermentation

Static fermentation is not a fermentation method that only takes about 6 hours to complete, unlike the fast brewing method devised for mass production. This method refers to vinegar that is made from traditional wooden tubs and fermented and aged by the power of nature for 120 days or more. Vinegar made by traditional methods without additives can be tasted more clearly when used in cooking.

Customer's Review


Delicious for drinking and cooking
It is delicious as a drink, but it is very convenient to add to a demiglace sauce or stewed dishes as an accent to the dish. I always stock it so I won't run out.


Umami and rich in taste
I can feel the umami and richness that the vinegar I have used so far doesn't have. It even has a slight sweetness to it. I like this vinegar so much.


An irreplaceable seasoning!

Easy to drink
It is not sour and very mellow and easy to drink.
