Celebrating the 50th anniversary of James Bond’s screen debut in style

The long-awaited Skyfall, James Bond’s 23rd on-screen adventure, is soon to be released – exactly 50 years after Her Majesty’s most stylish secret servant made his 1962 film debut in Dr. No. To celebrate the milestone, James Bond’s favourite champagne House has launched Bollinger 002 for 007: a limited edition of a very special bottle of Bollinger, enhanced by a refined presentation box in the shape of a Walther PPK silencer.

To open the box, James Bond lovers will have to crack the code: the three figures 007 must be aligned, and the gun logo button pushed, to reveal a bottle of La Grande Année 2002. Why 2002? Because only ‘the most exceptional vintage of the last decade’ – in the words of Cellar Master Mathieu Kauffmann – could meet James Bond’s legendary high standards…
