Who doesnt enjoy a classic Bond movie? The thrill. the chase, the charm, the wit…perfect male figure for any women who adores the alpha male with a gentle touch. Very often you see Mr Bond drinking, or holding a glass of drink when he’s not in action, and have you wonder what exactly is he drinking?

Earlier in December, the world’s original luxury vodka Belvedere hosted a launch party announcing the collaboration with Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment to promote SPECTRE , the 24th installment of the James Bond series, due for global release on November 6, 2015.  At the London Transport of Museum, the party was held within the 007 Bond exhibition where lots of classic cars, jets and sets were displayed.

To answer your question, very often Mr Bond likes a good vodka martini. A classic James Bond’s vodka martini has a preference of ‘shaken, not stirred’, an expression of his impeccable taste and unparalleled style. When it comes to his signature drink, Mr. Bond chooses Belvedere, the vodka of choice for tastemakers who Know the Difference. To celebrate this new era of Bond and Belvedere martinis, the original luxury vodka house will release two custom made and limited editions to celebrate Bond’s vodka martini ‘Shaken not Stirred’, and its partnership with the 24th Bond adventure, SPECTRE.

Few choices of vodka martinis were provided, all recreated based on a certain era, quite a “man’s ” drink, but if it’s for James Bond, what would you expect?

MI6 bottle

Belvedere has replaced the iconic Belvedere Palace with the famous London MI6 headquarters which has been blown up quite a few times in the movie series. Belvedere’s signature blue palette will be switched for a green, mirroring the secret spy agency’s ink of choice, creating a limited edition of 100 bottles, a true collector’s option. Excellent choice, Mr Bond!

It’s a little pity the current Mr Bond Daniel Craig didn’t show up as well for this announcement, but I’m sure Mr Bond has a much more important mission to do that night, so I’ll let this one get away.
