Located in the picturesque seaside village of Ine, with the brewery situated right on the water’s edge, Mukai Shuzō’s production is entirely junmaishu. The brewing is headed by Mukai Kuniko, one of Japan’s first female tōji, and one of the most creative altogether. Her ability to envision taste and her incredible technical prowess mean that she can construct sake flavors that are stunning and groundbreaking.
This unique sake is partly made with an ancient rice variety, which gives its red color to the sake, as well as a distinctive olive/pomegranate taste and aroma. The balanced sweetness and acidity make it a perfect aperitif, and we can imagine this pairing well with charcuterie or spicy entrées.
