In honour of the 60th anniversary of James Bond’s first appearance on the big screen, Blackwell Rum has released a special limited edition rum that pays tribute to the iconic British spy who guys by the codename ‘007’.
Blackwell Rum 007 is a premium Jamaican rum that has been aged for a minimum of seven years and comes in a sleek black bottle with a gold label and the famous 007 logo. Blackwell Rum was created by Chris Blackwell, a legendary music producer and founder of Island Records, who was born and raised in Jamaica.
Blackwell’s family has been involved in the rum-making business for generations, and he used his knowledge and expertise to create a unique blend of aged Jamaican rums that reflect the island’s rich history and culture. The connection between Blackwell Rum and James Bond goes back to the original novels of the British spy written by Ian Fleming, who was a close friend of Blackwell’s family.
Fleming often visited Jamaica and was known to enjoy the local rum. In fact, he even named his famous Bond “shaken, not stirred” martini recipe after a Jamaican bartender named Martini.
GoldenEye in St Mary, the upscale compound built around Fleming’s Jamaican hideaway is owned by Blackwell, who has developed it into a much sought after hospitality getaway location. Blackwell Rum 007 is a fitting tribute to both James Bond and the Jamaican heritage of Blackwell Rum.
The rum has a complex flavour profile that includes notes of vanilla, caramel, and tropical fruits, with a smooth and mellow finish that makes it perfect for sipping on its own or mixing into classic cocktails like the Mai Tai or the Old Fashioned. This limited edition rum is a must-have for fans of James Bond and rum connoisseurs alike.
Only 6,000 bottles of Blackwell Rum 007 have been produced, so don’t miss your chance to add this special release to your collection. It is available exclusively through Passion Spirits.
