The company has said no further batches of this superb rum will be produced so you should get your hands on a bottle while they are still available.
Among the many drinks that featured in No Time to Die was a bottle of Blackwell Rum seen in Bond’s Jamaican house. The company was founded by Chris Blackwell, a notable figure in the music industry who played a significant role in popularizing reggae music and introducing the world to Bob Marley’s music.
He also has direct links to James Bond; he worked on Dr No, his mother was Ian Fleming’s lover and he now owns Fleming’s Jamaican hideaway, Goldeneye.
Drawing inspiration from his Jamaican heritage, Blackwell expanded his ventures into the realm of spirits with Blackwell Fine Jamaican Rum. Crafted in Jamaica, it embodies the essence of the island’s rum-making traditions. It undergoes a meticulous production process, starting with the selection of the finest sugarcane and molasses. The sugarcane is harvested at its peak and processed to extract the rich molasses, which forms the base for Blackwell Rum.
Following fermentation, the rum is distilled using traditional copper pot stills, allowing for the extraction of the spirit’s distinctive characteristics. The resulting rum is then aged in oak barrels, where it matures and develops its complexity and depth of flavour. The aging process enhances the rum’s smoothness and imparts notes of tropical fruits, spices, and caramel.
While the bottle that appeared in No Time to Die as the standard product, Blackwell Rum also produced a special edition rum to celebrate 60 years of cinematic 007. While the standard product is an amazing rum to drink with all kinds of flavours coming through as you sip it, the Special Edition 007 rum is even better.
You can buy the rum direct, but in the UK and Europe you currently get a better deal buying it from Amazon. Check it out below:
