    無粋

    Hello...
    as you can see in this picture,

    she does not drink sake.
    She drank when she was young and made a mess.
    From then onward she has never drunk again.
    When she is offered, she always refuses.
    Now, she is in the presence of a very big shot, Fukushima Masanori.
    My problem with that busui is if she is saying that she is sorry
    for being unrefined/unclassy and so on (drinking sake as a status symbol of the high class?)
    or if she is using busui with the meaning of "tasteless"...
    "I am deeply sorry, but it has no taste for me".
    A polite way of saying "I don't like it, stop pestering me, you drunkard" or something

    I'm sure you have checked the term 無粋 in EN to JP JP to EN dictionaries. You may also want to check JP to JP dictionaries [such as goo dic link], which probably give you a better picture.

    It's nothing to do with high class, by the way.

    What she is saying is that "I'm not much of a sake drinker. I'm sorry to be a downer/party pooper" in a polite way.
