It all came full circle as Blackwell Run was featured in the new “Bond 25” movie along with a partnership of a limited edition Blackwell Rum 007 bottle and expression available for sale at select retailers and on their website.
With regard to which scene to look for the Rum, JamesBondLifestyle.com seems to indicate in the image below as Daniel Craig reaching for his gun, In No Time To Die, he has been living at his house in Oracabessa, Jamaica..
Bond’s peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
The limited-edition Rum features an augmented reality experience available via a QR code on the bottle, where Blackwell, who is best known for discovering Bob Marley, comes to life to share life stories, music selections, cocktail recipes, and more.

The Fine Jamaican Rum is inspired by his family’s time-honored recipe. This aged, rich, and fragrant dark gold rum is filled with the warmth and sensuality of Jamaica. “This is a rum that celebrates Jamaica, my friendships, and also my family legacy,” Chris Blackwell tells us.
