Mukai Sake Brewery

Founded in 1754, Mukai Sake Brewery is a small sake brewery with an annual production of about 5 million bottles. Ms. Kuniko Mukai has served as head brewer since 1999 and is the eldest daughter of this family business. At the time of her appointment, there was a lot of buzz about her because she was the first female head brewer in Japan. Because of her perseverance in making wholly unique sake, "Ine Mankai" (their ancient red rice sake) was served during the G20 Osaka Summit held in 2019.
