While Ninki-ichi (人気一) literally means "most popular," it's actually a play on words based on the idea that this sake is brewed by people (人) who put all of their feeling (気) into the job. Befitting the name, this sparkling sake was used in the award ceremonies at the Japanese Championship Formula Nippon, considered among the top class of auto racing in Japan.
The impactful label and styling of the dedicated pressure-resistant bottle combine with the sophisticated taste of in-bottle secondary fermentation that you get with junmai daiginjo sake to offer a unique sake experience. The label on the champion bottle bears the signature of 2009 Formula Nippon series champion Loïc Duval.
