TASTE James Bond & His Drinks - Loki Wine Down Tasting
Time & Location
About The Event
Wine down Saturday: A look into the drinks of James Bond – Online Wine Tasting – 7th November
Welcome to a new series of Loki's Wine Down online tastings. During these series we will focus on topics around wine and alcohol in general and they are even more informal than our usual Cheese and Wine online tastings.
During our first tasting we will talk about legendary drinker, James Bond, who imbibed an enormous number of drinks, such as the famous Vodka Martini, as well as having an insatiable appetite for fine wines such as Chateau Mouton-Rothschild, amongst other things…
We will chat about the vast array of drinks that 007 consumed, get a feel of the luxurious life that he portrayed and enjoyed whilst enjoying a tipple ourselves.
We are going to be joined by Tony Elvin, a qualified Sommelier, ex Hotel du Vin General Manager and owner of the Wines Events Company, Tony has a passion for making wine accessible and fun (you’ll witness this first-hand!).
For the tasting you will get three options that Bond would have approved of:
- A half bottle of Bollinger Classic Cuvee & a full bottle of Chianti Classico
- A full bottle of Bollinger Classic Cuvee James Bond limited edition & a full bottle of Chianti Classico. This bottle was launched to celebrate Bollinger being the Official James Bond champagne for 40 years and the upcoming film No Time To Die. The limited edition gift box features the silhouette of James Bond alongside his Aston Martin DB5.Champagne Bollinger worked with celebrated photographer Greg Williams (who has worked on many Bond films and commercials), for the Special Cuvée 007 Limited Edition campaign, featuring his signature cinematic style that also appears in the No Time To Die campaign.
- A full bottle of Mosel Riesling & a full bottle of Chianti Classico
