new seasonal sake: Ninki ichi

The Ninki brewery is located in Nihonmatsu City in the Fukushima prefecture, surround by the Abukuma mountain ranges to the east and Adatara Mountain ranges to the west.
Run-off snow melt gives Ninki brewery a natural water source with a good balance of minerals which is essential for producing high-grade Sake.
Mr Yujin Yusa is 19th generation president of Ninki brewery, and he is only use locally-grown sake rice to brew their sake also they don't brew lower than Ginjo types.
He believes that the good sake should only have a supporting role at the table: it must complement the seasonal dishes being served.
Also he's aim to deliver sake to all drinkers could have a sip everyday. So they are not too rich or strong, they provide wide range of good balanced sake and shochu.

Ninki Brewery is a very small brewery and all sake production is hand-crafted using traditional methods and traditional wooden tools.
The name Ninki translates as "popularity", but the company is now branding Ninki as "Man (Nin) makes sake by their soul (Ki)".
They have also added the suffix "Ichi", meaning "One", to their name to show that they aim to be number.

This is the range of sake that you can enjoy only in Zuma restaurant.
