If you too prefer your Vodka, ‘shaken not stirred’ like Mr. James Bond, this piece of information is going to make you very very happy! In bringing forward the Bond taste into reality, EON productions (the UK based firm that controls worldwide merchandising for James Bond movies) has recently partnered with Belvedere Vodka to unveil the official 007 Martini, that we all have secretly been waiting for!
If history is a testament, it was James bond that rendered a luxury appeal Vodka when he exclaimed, “I would like a medium vodka dry martini – with a slice of lemon peel. Shaken and not stirred please. I would prefer Russian or Polish vodka.” The catchphrase from the 1985 book was then adapted into its film version in 1964 making way for the trademark statement: “A martini, shaken, not stirred”, that also happens to be one of the 100 most famous films lines.
Since Bond himself preferred a Polish vodka, how could we have his staple Martini it in any other form? With it luxurious blending and finesse, Belvedere Vodka makes a perfect fit for the 007 Martini. The premium Polish vodka evokes a structured, elegant and balanced taste profile that comes with a subtle sweetness and an uber-smooth finish. While the price of the Official Belvedere 007 Martini is not known, it will now be available at the world’s most refined cocktail bars. Care to give it a try?
