I am told there is a place in Hamilton, Ontario that sells Kikkomon Mirin. Does anyone know where this may be?
Kikkomon Mirin, be carefull most grocery store Mirin has corn syrup in it. You can get real Mirin at the Big Carrot and at Whole Foods.
I'm interested in buying Mirin also, but what ingredients should it have on the label. You say some have corn syrup, what should the label say for real Mirin. Thanks.

Find a Korean grocery and you'll find mirin.
Kikkoman make a decent one. Get it at Fortino's/Loblaws/Zehrs
Decent? My bottle tastes of corn syrup and glucose. Where are the real Mirin's? They should be at LCBO but that outfit is gauged toward suburban or condo 'lifestyle'!
Think this got run ragged some time back. Archives?
I remember that. Consensus was that LCBO did not have true Mirin, but it might be available from some grey market or cloak and dagger sources, in large quantities.
It's available at Japanese restaurant wholesalers like Nishimoto, Yamasho and Ozawa but in 18L containers.
no cloak & dagger sources, that's the unsalted shaoxing rice wine.
Large Metro or Loblaw Super store with an Oriental food section should carry them. Should be close to the Kikkoman Teriyaki sauces. Otherwise any Oriental supermarket should have them!
Not sure about Hamilton but just about any major gorcery store in GTA areas like Mississiauga, Markham, Richmond Hill will carry it not to mention T&T grocery store or the ethnic sections of major grocery stores.
Always go to an Asian grocery store for Asian ingredients,always much cheaper.
Any grocery store in Chinatown will have it.
There's a Chinatown in Steel Town??!!
FYI - I just picked up Kikkomon Mirin at Loblaws Suoerstore in Whitby. They only sell the small bottles but actually carry 3 different brands. Thanks to all for your replies.Cheers,
