Belvedere creates the 007 martini for your holiday tippling pleasure

Vodka company presents James Bond shaken, not stirred cocktail

Martini drinkers are very fussy about their cocktail. The true devotee of the potent beverage can even take their pickiness to peckishness.  Some, especially the true aficianada  like it with gin and an iota of vermouth, others  prefer vodka, which is what Belvedere is banking on.
The world's original luxury vodka has partnered  with EON Productions to bring James Bond's iconic "shaken, not stirred" cocktail to the finest lounges around the world.
"Ordering a vodka martini signals appreciation of the classic cocktail, which has been demonstrated effortlessly by James Bond throughout the years," said Rodney Williams, president of Belvedere Vodka. "We believe the martini is the best place for our vodka's character to shine through, and we are proud to present the Official Belvedere 007TM martini."
Bond's preferred "shaken, not stirred" vodka martini has become such an iconic catchphrase that, in 2005, it was selected as one of the 100 most famous lines in film. The Official Belvedere 007TM martini, available at the world's most refined cocktail bars, is crafted with Belvedere Vodka, Dry Vermouth and is always "shaken, not stirred". Elegant, balanced and distinctive, it is full of character with every sip and finished off with a lemon twist.
