Bleed Them Dry Premium Sake will premiere in the U.S. with exclusive limited edition collector sets in Fall 2021.

Themed after the Vault Comics vampire ninja comic book of the same name, the Bleed Them Dry sake series is a one-of-a-kind collaboration with veteran Japanese sake maker Asahara Shuzo.

To celebrate the launch, world-renowned artist Yoshitaka Amano has created intense, vampire-themed illustrations for the diverse flavors of the black and red variations. Collectors will be able to purchase the sake in deluxe packages which include high-quality digitally-signed prints of Amano’s original art created exclusively for the sake launch and rare one-on-one video chats with the artist.

Fans can register now for early access to the premium limited packages: https://takasan.co/products/btd-sake

The U.S.-based sake consulting and event company Japanese Sake Sisters, LLC. will be the exclusive agent for this sake collaboration.

“I’m really looking forward to the Bleed Them Dry Japanese sake brand launching in the U.S. this fall,” said Amano.

“It’s connected to the American comic book series that was quite successful with sci-fi horror fans. The concept of the ‘Ninja Vampire’ is both frightful and thrilling, and I put those mixed feelings into creating the image that will be presented with ‘BTD Red’ and ‘BTD Black’. Both are Junmai Daiginjo super premium sake and produced by the Asahara Shuzo brewery, which has a great reputation. I hope you will enjoy the sake and my work. Kampai!”
