“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), to now.”

Introducing James Bond 007 Jamaican Rum by Blackwell Rum (70cl), a dark golden rum, with a colourful, rich complexity. Created to celebrate Bond's links to Jamaica, which take us from Ian Fleming to Dr. No and No Time To Die (2021).
Details.This fine Jamaican rum is distilled and blended by J. Wray & Nephew’s Master Blender, Joy Spence, in Jamaica to a bespoke recipe from the days when Blackwell’s mother’s family owned J. Wray & Nephew and the Appleton Estate. Made with Jamaican sugar cane, the rum is tropically aged for two years to mellow, without any overpowering woody notes. Presented in a special 007 black and gold bottle.
Tasting notes. A dark rum character with the smooth and light body notes of gold. A soft and sweet entrance with vanilla and caramel flavours, followed by toasted marshmallow and a natural spice finish.
The maker. Chris Blackwell founded Island Records and is a longtime resident of Jamaica.
