Bond and booze: test your knowledge

10. Which drinks brand has opted for pistol-shaped packaging to celebrate its Bond association?

30,000 bottles of Bollinger’s 002 for 007 have been produced

Answer – Bollinger

Bollinger has unveiled its latest James Bond special edition ahead of the next 007 film, Skyfall. The product, called 002 for 007, comprises a bottle of La Grande Année 2002 housed in a gun silencer shaped gift box with a combination lock – opened using the code: 007.

2012 marks 39 years since Bollinger developed an on-screen relationship with the fictional character created by Ian Fleming, and James Bond has been seen drinking Bollinger in 12 films of the 23 made in total.

The Champagne brand produced a special piece of packaging in September 2008 for the last Bond film, Quantum of Solace – a bullet-shaped case made from polished tin.
