We are delighted to introduce some of their popular products that have captured the hearts of our discerning customers:

Green Plum Extract: This creation is crafted by marinating kernel-rich plums, harvested directly in Jeollanam province, in sugar and aging them at low temperatures for over 3 years. After the pulp is skimmed off, the stock undergoes a second aging process, resulting in a rich and deep flavour. The versatility of this plum extract is remarkable; it can enhance the flavours of various dishes, including seasoned vegetables, soups, stews, and salad dressings. It can also be diluted in water, milk, or sparkling water for a refreshing beverage option.

Yuja Extract: Meticulously distilled from fresh yuzu fruits nurtured in the gentle embrace of the warm sea breeze from the South Sea, this citron concentrate is a testament to purity. Each citron is thoroughly cleaned, hand-squeezed, and fermented to perfection, resulting in a taste that is wonderfully fresh and naturally sweet. This delightful concentrate is perfect for blending with sparkling water or mixing with yogurt for a delightful salad dressing that truly captures the essence of yuzu's flavour.

Anchovy Extract: Crafted from meticulously aged, fresh anchovies over a span of three years in a subterranean sanctuary, using carefully refined salt and low-temperature conditions. This painstaking maturation process results in a crystal-clear, transparent red fish sauce that resides at the depths of the storage tank, delivering a luxuriously rich and unadulterated flavour profile. This exceptional extract is an ideal as a salt or soy sauce replacement, it enhances the taste of kimchi, seasonings, stir-fries, and stews.

Jeju Mandarin Vinegar: Crafted using traditional methods in loess pottery, this natural fermented fruit vinegar offers a harmonious blend of rich sweetness and tanginess. It serves as a delightful alternative to balsamic vinegar when used as a dressing sauce for salads. Additionally, you can enjoy its detoxifying benefits by diluting 20ml of vinegar in 500ml of water to create a refreshing detox water.

Salicornia Herbacea Salt: Produced by leveling tidal flats and directly harvesting salt from them, this salt is meticulously sourced from the pure top layer of salt, enriched with processed glassworts to develop a deep aromatic quality. Use it as a seasoning or mix a small portion with water to drink.

Pickled Garlic Scape: Crafted from garlic shoots cultivated in Uiseong, nurtured without chemical fertilisers in mineral-rich soil. After consuming the garlic shoots, the leftover brine can be repurposed to make pickles with cucumbers or onions.

Tangerine Treats: These delightful treats are crafted by incorporating undiluted mandarin juice, resulting in a savoury citrus delicacy. For the ultimate experience, try them alongside a cup of tea.

Baked Yugwa: A variation of the classic Korean dessert, yugwa, skillfully created from pounded glutinous rice, blended with honey, water, and Korean rice wine (cheongju). This variation is baked, offering a delightful blend of sweetness. For the ultimate enjoyment, store it in the freezer before indulging for a delightful crispy texture in every bite.

Onion Juice: Crafted from Munsan onions harvested between April and June, this pure and additive-free onion juice is ideal for enjoying during the summer. Its high sulfur content effectively prevents hair breakage and thinning while promoting the growth of new hair. Furthermore, it is rich in antioxidants that help delay premature graying of the hair, making it an excellent addition to your hair care routine.
