Devilman Whiskey Marks Go Nagai's 50th Anniversary as Creator
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
What pairs well with a demon-themed series about a part-demon man fighting to save humanity? A whiskey of the same name might. Testing that theory, Shogakukan's Otona no Ippin online shop is offering special Invergordon 1972 whiskey with a Devilman label.
Whiskey critic Hideo Yamaoka selected the single grain whiskey to honor Go Nagai's Devilman manga, which launched in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 1972. The product celebrates the 50th anniversary of Nagai's debut. The Invergordon 1972 whiskey was aged for 44 years at a distillery in the port town of Invergordon in Highland, Scotland.
The whiskey is 48.9% alcohol, and each bottle is 700 milliliters (about 24 fluid ounces). Only 252 bottles were available, and each bottle cost 29,160 yen (about US$262). The whiskey went on sale on Wednesday, but the online shop already lists it as sold-out.
Netflix's DEVILMAN crybaby anime also celebrates Nagai's 50th anniversary as a creator. The 10-episode series premiered worldwide on January 5.
