About Mukai Shuzo | Ine, Kyoto Prefecture
In the idyllic fishing town of Ine lies a small brewery that has made a big impact. Kuniko Mukai was a country girl, coaxed by her parents to study in the Tokyo University of Agriculture. Her flagship Ine Mankai , a challenge set out by Prof. Takeda, has propelled the quaint village onto the sake map. She assumed the role of toji at the young age of 22. Her sakes are a reflection of her outgoing and curious nature, a cheery, infectious soul who constantly pushes forward.
