Ninki Brewery, founded in 1897, is located in Nihonmatsu, Fukushima Prefecture. Nihonmatsu overlooks the Abukuma mountain range to the east and the Adatara mountains to the west. The underground water of Mt. Adatara, where the thawed water soaked into the soil to be polished by rocks over forty years, turned it into a clear water source containing many minerals. It is the most suitable water for sake brewing. Ninki Brewery uses locally grown rice and focuses exclusively on producing ginjō sake. Ginjō sake is made by slow fermentation at low temperatures when the yeast is less active.

There were many breweries in Nihonmatsu in the past. However, in the early Showa period, several of them disappeared, including the Naganuma family's Hanakasumi (花霞), the birthplace of tōji Kotaro Takamura's wife, Chieko. Among them was a brand called "Ninki" (人氣), considered a befitting trade name for sake because it translates to "brewed by people, with all their energy". The brewers also wanted to express their aim of striving for the highest quality by adding "Ichi" (number one) to their company name: "Ninki-Ichi".

This is a very popular, mass-produced and inexpensive sake, a fact the brewery takes pride in. It has a fruity nose of stone fruits and strawberries and a sweet flavour with notes of bitterness and slight acidity. Crisp finish with a sour tingle. Perhaps a tad too sweet for some.
