Five decades on her Majesty’s Secret Service and the release of Skyfall are celebrated with a Bond limited-edition champagne. Champagne Bollinger, featured in the recent James Bond movies like Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, has released a bottle of La Grande Année 2002 housed in an exclusive case (£125), available from 23 September at Harrods.
During the release of Quantum of Solace in 2008, Bollinger released a very limited series of a champagne cooler in the shape of a bullet. The cooler holds a bottle of Bollinger 1999.
The literary James Bond first encounters Bollinger in the book Diamonds Are Forever, when Tiffany Case sends a quarter-bottle to his cabin on the Queen Elizabeth.

Founded in 1829, Champagne Bollinger introduced the world to an instantly recognizable, dry, toasty style that connoisseurs around the globe covet.
