With every passing day the highly anticipated No Time to Die nears its release, but unable to control the excitement and in partnership with the 007 film franchise, Blackwell Rum has announced the release of its 007 Fine Jamaican Rum.
The bottle is dressed in its finest 007 tuxedo with a gold leafed emblem and just like the adapted novels, it’s what lays beyond the cover that’s most important. The sensuality of Jamaica is what drives the notes of this aged, rich, and fragrant dark gold rum, but its heart and soul pulls from Blackwell’s time-honored family recipe. The bottle is a little large for the Aston Martin and it’s not the preferred spirit of the iconic 007 Martini, but as No Time To Die is filmed in Jamaica, this limited release bottle just may find its way into a scene or two.
And while things might start to slip away after a few glasses of this exclusive, the bottle is loaded with a “Q”R code to deliver an out body of body experience where Blackwell shares life stories, music selections, cocktail recipes, and more.
This is a rum that celebrates Jamaica, my friendships, and also my family legacy,”– Chris Blackwell.
Chris Blackwell, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and famed founder/producer of Island Records introduced the world to ska music, is credited with finding Bob Marley, and worked alongside the likes of U2, Toots and the Maytals, Etta James, and Nirvana. And with early admiration for the Bond stories, Blackwell worked as a location scout for the 1962 Dr. No. He has built many empires in and around Jamaica, is a philanthropist, leads direction for his family’s Blackwell Rum, and continues to live in Ian Fleming’s former Golden Eye home.
Some 60 years later from Blackwell’s first introduction to grappling watches, DB5s, and Bond girls, he has once again found himself on the set of a Bold film and delivered countless cases of the iconic Blackwell Rum to the James’ Bond house.
This is a Limited Edition 007 Blackwell Jamaican Rum to be enjoyed by the finest of MI6, any opposing henchman, you and I, and without a doubt, Money Penny.
