One British Columbian will win the rare opportunity to purchase a $75,000 Scotch whisky made with a piston from James Bond’s car.
In Goldfinger, Bond drove an 1963 Aston Martin DB5. Part of the car is now embedded in the decanter that holds the 31-year-old Black Bowmore DB5 1964 whisky.
As a limited-released collaboration between the two companies – Bowmore and Aston Martin – there are only 25 bottles ever made.
The whisky’s tasting notes include mango and acacia honey merged with a coffee and tobacco smoke flavour combination, according to Bowmore distillery officials.
A single bottle purchased by B.C.’s Liquor Distribution Branch will be sold to the winner of a draw made at the Cambie Street and 39th Avenue store in Vancouver, from Feb. 5 to 7.
The winner will be notified by email on Feb. 11 or 12, according to BC Liquor Stores.
