Mukai Shuzō

Mukai Shuzō is located at the northern tip of Kyōto prefecture and is right on the coast of the Sea of Japan, in the picturesque fishing village of Ine.
The Mukai brewery was founded in 1754 and is still a family run business today.  

The current Tōji (Master Brewer) is Kuniko Mukai, she became one of the first women Tōji in Japan. 
Kuniko Mukai constantly experiments with unusual rice and yeast combinations producing new and unique types of Sake, most of which are made in minuscule amounts.
Ine Mankai is the result of one of these innovations by including partially an ancient variety of red rice in the fermentation process.
