ABOUT THE PRODUCER: 
Mukai Kuniko is one of Japan’s first female head brewers. She is a virtuoso at using innovative methods to produce extremely unusual flavors that expand the horizons of sake’s taste range.

ABOUT THE LABEL:
Kuniko went away and began to formulate ideas for this perfectly balanced sake. In early 2000 Kuniko launched her red rice sake and called it 'Ine Mankai' meaning ‘Ine in Full Bloom’ and its well-balanced levels of sweetness & acidity make it perfect for drinking with a wide variety of food
