Belvedere unveils ‘perfect’ James Bond Martini

8th December, 2017 by Owen Bellwood

Vodka brand Belvedere has partnered with UK film company EON Productions to create the official James Bond Martini cocktail.

James Bond’s classic Martini was always “shaken, not stirred”

The iconic “shaken, not stirred” cocktail has been a key feature of the action-packed spy films and novels since the 1958 book Dr. No.

Rodney Williams, president of Belvedere Vodka, said: “Ordering a vodka Martini signals appreciation of the classic cocktail, which has been demonstrated effortlessly by James Bond throughout the years.”

He continued: “We believe the Martini is the best place for our vodka’s character to shine through, and we are proud to present the Official Belvedere 007 Martini.”

The famous cocktail was first ordered on screen in 1964 film Goldfinger, where actor Sean Connery plays the British super spy and delivers the classic line.

The official Belvedere 007 Martini is made with 60ml Belvedere Vodka, 10ml dry vermouth “shaken, not stirred” and finished off with a lemon twist.

The classic cocktail has been described as “elegant, balanced and distinctive, it is full of character with every sip.”

Bond’s preferred “shaken, not stirred” vodka Martini has become such an iconic catchphrase that, in 2005, it was selected as one of the 100 most famous lines in film.
