Origin of the name
1. Please explain the origin of the name your representative/famous brand.
The name "Ninki" was derived from the land of Matsu, which has a long history of sake brewing. While the name itself means "popular" in Japanese, we thought that it can be interpreted as "brewed passionately by people", which is in line with our manufacturing methods. We added the character "ichi" meaning "the best", to come up with the name "Ninki-Ichi".
