World of Zing launches 007 bottled cocktailsBy Alice Brooker
Pre-batched cocktail specialist World of Zing has collaborated with Everyman Cinema to celebrate the release of the latest Bond film.
Three bespoke cocktails have been launched by London-based World of Zing to mark the release of No Time to Die next week, the latest instalment in the James Bond film franchise.
The cocktails will be available from bars within Everyman Cinemas across the UK from 30 September this year.
The trio of cocktails includes the Smoke & Leather Old Fashioned, crafted with Bowmore No.1 Malt Whisky, walnut liqueur and a leather tannin tincture.
This beverage is said to be a ‘supercharged twist’ on the classic Old Fashioned, and is inspired by the notorious car chases of the Bond films. The cocktail presents gentle smoke on the nose, with notes of tannins and walnuts on the palate to replicate the leather of the 007 agent’s car.
The Golden Passionfruit Spritz adds to the collection, a concoction made with Cointreau, Passoã liqueur, passionfruit, vanilla and gold flakes as a nod to the infamous beach scenes in the action films. The cocktail takes inspiration from the Pornstar Martini, featuring gold flakes as an added touch to the beach theme.
Finally, the Everyman Martini completes the range, crafted with Gordon’s gin, Russian vodka, Cinzano vermouth and lemon oil. The blend boasts a ‘more approachable flavour profile’ than the Vesper Martini, which is commonly associated with the 007 agent.
Earlier this year, World of Zing secured eight new accounts, including countryside hotel chain The Pig.
