James Bond gifts: drinks

Drinks

While James Bond is best known for his vodka martinis, there is far more to 007’s drinks that “shaken, not stirred”. In both the books and films he drinks Champagne, whisky and and plenty more beside.  The brands listed below are all found in Daniel Craig’s films and really just a start.

Blackwell Rum 007 limited edition

To celebrate the release of No Time to Die, which was partly filmed in Jamaica, Blackwell Rum partnered with Eon Productions with a limited edition 007 rum.

The company is owned by Chris Blackwell, founder of Island Records and current owner of Goldeneye, Ian Fleming’s Jamaican retreat. Bond drinks Blackwell Rum while at his home in Jamaica.

Lillet Blanc

While the original Kina Lillet was an essential ingredient in the Vesper cocktail, it is no longer available. Instead you can use the reformulated Lillet Blanc and optionally add a dash or two of bitters for that authentic taste.

Smirnoff vodka

In No Time to Die James Bond and Paloma drink vodka martinis at a bar in Santiago de Cuba. The martinis are made with Smirnoff Red, a brand with a long association with 007, seen on the bar above. Smirnoff is owned by Diagio, an official partner on the film.

If you’re mixing martinis at home you might like to serve them in antique-style glasses similar to those in the film.

Belvedere Vodka

In SPECTRE 007’s vodka of choice was the premium Polish brand, Belvedere. Drink it chilled or, like Bond and Madeleine aboard the train in Morocco, in a dirty vodka martini.

Bollinger frequently appears in the Bond films, most recently in No Time to Die while he and Madeleine spend some down time in Matera, Italy. Although the bottle can’t be seen clearly, Bollinger is once again an official partner.
