Fancy Cowboy Bebop Blend Mashes up Six Sakes

Cowboy Bebop sake


The crew of the Bebop is colorful, eclectic, and weird in all the right ways — so a drink that celebrates them would have to be just as varied.


Akihabara Premium has rolled out a fancy blended whiskey from Nagahama Distillery, Japan's smallest distillery. The blend consists of six whiskeys, each representing the Bebop and all who sail in her.

The blend starts with a 30-year-aged whiskey, for the reliable old Bebop. Representing Spike Spiegel is a peaty whiskey with smoky tones and a "dangerous charm." For Jet Black, a medium long-aged Highland malt for that calm maturity. Faye Valentine gets a fruity white wine cask aged spirit, for her mystery and femininity. Radical Ed's whiskey is red cask aged, for bright notes. Ein is in there, too — represented by a complex and likable malt aged in a little octave cask.

The whiskey will be available on its own, or in a collector's set with a fancy rocks glass. The glasses are made by traditional glass blowers at Tokyo's Tajima Glass.


The whiskey — alone or in its limited-edition set — will be available for pre-order starting November 30. A bottle alone will cost 27,500 yen, and a bottle with the glass in its collectible box will cost 41,800 yen. Orders will be delivered starting in December.
