Consider this... 

Sake has many different names - literally. Every brewery has a brewery name, which is owned by a family that has a family name, and if that is not enough that brewery may name their sakes by a brand name. For example, there is a brewery in Yamagata called Kamenoi Shuzo, which is owned by the Imai family, but you may know the sakes by their brand name, Kudoki Jozu (which loosely translates into the "Pick-up Artist)
