Bollinger (French pronunciation: ​[bɔ.lɛ̃.ʒe]) is a Champagne house, a producer of sparkling wines from the Champagne region of France. They produce several labels of Champagne under the Bollinger name, including the vintage Vieilles Vignes Françaises, Grande Année and R.D. as well as the non-vintage Special Cuvée. Founded in 1829 in Aÿ by Hennequin de Villermont, Paul Renaudin and Jacques Bollinger the house continues to be run by members of the Bollinger family. In Britain Bollinger Champagnes are affectionately known as "Bolly". (Wikipedia)

Official 007 Vodka Martini: Belvedere and James Bond collaboration


Belvedere Vodka and EON Productions have partnered to introduce the Official Belvedere 007 Martini. This collaboration will bring James Bond’s iconic cocktail to the finest cocktail bars around the world.

The Official Belvedere 007 Martini is crafted with Belvedere Vodka, Dry Vermouth, finished with a lemon twist and is always “shaken not stirred”.

Bond’s penchant for a particular type of martini is evident from the beginning of the film series. In fact, it’s his first cinematic drink in "Dr. No" (1962). When Bond is on assignment in Jamaica, a white-jacketed steward in his hotel room offers him, “One medium dry Vodka Martini, mixed like you said Sir, and not stirred.”

It was not until Sean Connery’s third outing as Bond in "Goldfinger" (1964) that we hear 007 say those now trademarked words. He has just “come to” after being tranquilised and is on Goldfinger’s private Lockheed JetStar. Mei-Lei (Mai Ling) Pussy Galore’s inflight assistant asks, “Can I do something for you Mr Bond?” His reply, “Just a drink. A Martini, shaken not stirred.”

The phrase “shaken not stirred” itself entered the lexicon, and in 2005 was selected as one of the 100 most famous lines in films.
