Yuri Plisetsky Gets Celebratory 100% Juice Birthday Drink
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
He might be the Yuri! on Ice wild child, but Yuri Plisetsky is still too young to drink alcohol in his homeland, Japan, or the U.S. Since March 1 is his birthday, Premium Bandai has prepared a special non-alcoholic drink to mark the occasion.
Staff acquired grapes from the renowned Katsunuma Winery in Yamanashi prefecture. The juice comes with two glasses that when put together create Yurio's short program costume while the back has his favorite tiger motif. His birth flower is also used throughout the packaging.
The set retails for 9,800 yen (US$86). Yūri Katsuki and Victor also have birthday glass sets sans drinks available for the 7,800 yen (US$68). Yūri's set was so popular, Premium Bandai extended the pre-order deadline and has a second shipment scheduled for February.
