In celebration of No Time To Die’s November 2020 release, Chris Blackwell – the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer and owner of Ian Fleming’s former residence, GoldenEye – is launching a special 007 Limited Edition release of his Blackwell Fine Jamaican Rum.
The limited edition Rum features an augmented reality experience available via a QR code on the bottle, where Blackwell, who is best known for discovering Bob Marley, comes to life to share life stories, music selections, cocktail recipes and more.
“James Bond has been a big part of my life, from my childhood lunches with Ian Fleming at GoldenEye to being a location scout on the first movie, Dr. No (1962). It was a pleasure working alongside the No Time To Die production team in Jamaica providing our iconic rum for the set in James Bond’s house, which has made this very special relationship come full circle,” says Blackwell.
The Fine Jamaican Rum is inspired by his family’s time-honoured recipe. This aged, rich and fragrant dark gold rum is filled with the warmth and sensuality of Jamaica. “This is a rum that celebrates Jamaica, my friendships, and also my family legacy,” adds Blackwell.
The 007 Limited Edition Rum goes on sale in November.
