The latest Bond film, Spectre, opens in theatres this Friday, November 6, and to tie in with the big premiere Belvedere is celebrating with an exclusive limited edition bottle, and a special ad campaign featuring actress Stephanie Sigman.
“Ordering a vodka martini takes knowledge and self-assurance, which has been demonstrated effortlessly by James Bond throughout the years” states Stephanie Sigman. “His cool attitude and stylish sophistication have gone hand in hand with his choice of vodka martini. Belvedere is a great match.”
In the TV commercial, directed by director Antoine Bardou-Jacquet, a perfect sequence of events helps the bartender create a shaken martini for Sigman, finished off with the Bond theme song.
The limited edition Belvedere 007 Spectre bottle, in both 1 litre and 1.75 litre sizes, is available in stores now and features the iconic gun barrel and 007 gun logo.
Belvedere is also promoting the stylish bottle and Bond partnership with a unique vodka martini recipe that features Sicilian green olive and olive brine. Shaking is, naturally, optional.
