Harvey Nichols Limited Edition 007 Fine Jamaican Rum Gift Box
The release of No Time To Die has caused Bond fever to sweep across the nation. Whether you’ve been to the cinema already or are still waiting to see the critically acclaimed latest instalment in the James Bond franchise, we highly recommend a tot of this limited-edition 007 Blackwell Fine Jamaican Rum to steady your nerves. 1,000 bottles have been slipped into super stylish gift boxes – presumably designed by Q – exclusively for Harvey Nichols. Available nowhere else, these are the perfect present for any Bond fan.
Chris Blackwell, the businessman and founder of Island Records, is famed for bringing Bob Marley to an international audience, and according to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame “he is the single person most responsible for turning the world on to reggae music.” But he is also intrinsically linked to the world of rum and a fictitious spy with a licence to kill…
Growing up in Jamaica, Chris Blackwell would lunch with his mother’s close friend and the 007 creator, Ian Fleming. He later helped scout locations for the first Bond film – Dr. No in 1962 – and even has a cameo in it. Eventually he would end up buying the Jamaican villa called GoldenEye, where Fleming wrote the novels. Being a shrewd businessman, Blackwell transformed the villa into a boutique hotel. This business savvy may well run in the genes, as his family were also responsible for Crosse & Blackwell and would later buy the J. Wray & Nephew distillery and forge its superstar, Appleton Rum. Inspired by his family’s time-honoured recipe and with help from Master Blender Joy Spence, Chris Blackwell crafted his own small pot distillation Blackwell Fine Jamaican Rum at the very same distillery, describing it as a “rum that celebrates Jamaica, my friendships, and also my family legacy.” Both the rum and the GoldenEye villa will feature in the new No Time to Die film, so things seem to have come full circle.
To mark the 25th film in the official James Bond series, Blackwell Fine Jamaican Rum has created a 007 Limited Edition. 25,007 bottles of this rich, warming and dark golden rum have been released in France, Italy, the UK and the US. But only 1,000 of them have been slipped into an exclusive Harvey Nichols gift box. Expect funky esters and notes of treacle, maple syrup, polished antique furniture, bruised tropical fruit, hazelnut skins, walnut oil and liquorice. The rare bottles all feature a barcode that can be scanned with a smartphone, providing access to an augmented reality (Q’s technology again?) in which Chris Blackwell shares stories of his life, music selections, cocktail recipes and more.
