Article: Gastronomy like James Bond

Over the years agent 007 have always been associated with luxury, style, women, action and the amazingly superb knowledge within gastronomy. The character James Bond usually is known for Bollinger, Aston Martin and Vodka Martini - shaken not stirred. However over the years it has varied many times on what kind of beverage, automobile or gadgets 007 used. For instance in Goldfinger, Sean Connery drinks Dom Perignon instead of Bollinger and in resent years Daniel Craig has invented a new cocktail for the character; Vesper. Bollinger Champagne is actually not introduced to 007 until 1973 with "Live and Let Die". All in all we can say that James Bond brings style and high interest in food and beverage which we at Western Taste adores in James Bond the most amazing spy character of all times.
