The hype for No Time To Die continues to ramp up with high-profile champagne house Bollinger celebrates its 40-year collaboration with the 007 franchise with the release of the limited edition Moonraker themed bubbly.
"It brings me an immense amount of pride to be celebrating 40 years of partnership between Bollinger and James Bond, it is a testament to the friendship started in 1979, between my father Christian Bizot and James Bond producer Cubby Broccoli. A friendship based on our shared values such as excellence and elegance," CEO Jacques Bollinger said in a statement.
Although first appearing in Let And Let Die in 1973, it wasn't until 1979 when Bollinger become the official champagne of James Bond, visibly front and centre in Moonraker.
