vinegar for sushi rice

Does anyone have any suggestions for good brands of vinegar to use for sushi rice?

  1. I have used Heinz and am now using 4 Monks.

      1. My favorite readily available rice vinegar for sushi rice is Marukan.

          1. I have a blend of different vinegars, and I can vary the ratio for what I have for toppings//fillings.

            For rice wine vinegar I usually get the Marukan and Heinz for the red wine vinegar. Eden for the brown rice vinegar. I get Mitoku's Hato Mugi (Job's Tears, which I only recently discoved...mmm...) and sweet brown rice vinegars.

            I also get Mitoku's Mirin, which (according to them) is the only manufacturer still using traditional methods. It is certainly the best I've ever tasted, although Eden's is pretty good. All the Mitoku stuff I order online.
