On the occasion of the release of the new Bond film Quantum of Solace launches Bollinger of Bollinger & Collectors Bullet 007. The Bullet was designed by French designer Eric BerthÃ¨s and includes a magnum bottle of Bollinger Grande AnnÃ©e 1999. The unique shape is inspired from bullet of the Walther PPK, the gun of choice for James Bond in the Quantum of Solace.
The "bullet" is supplied in a wooden coffin. The whole weighs more than 30 kg and costs "around" 4,000 euro ($5,765). Only 207 of these exclusive bottles will be produced, and each of them will be numbered.
Bollinger has been the champagne of choice for James Bond ever since Ian Fleming wrote the first Bond books over fifty years ago. In Casino Royale (2006), the champagne brand was at least four times shown or mentioned. Also in the new Bond film, Quantum of Solace (2008), the champagne will be paid on two receptions and Bond drinks him while he waits for someone in the suite of a palace.
