Introducing Harrods’ newly launched James Bond-themed interactive experience, a month-long pop-up celebrating the release of an extraordinary 007 whisky from the world’s leading single malt whisky, The Macallan.
Londoners can travel through an interactive journey filled with memorabilia and moments from the legendary films at this James Bond event. On display until March 21st, this is one experience Bond fans won’t want to miss. Here’s everything you need to know…
Located on the Ground Floor of Harrods, upon entering the experience you’ll immediately follow a lit path to navigate through the exhibits. Central to the pop-up is a timeline composed of original illustrative designs, concept art and storyboards charting the creative development of the Bond films.
You’ll be able to explore some of the key figures and objects from the films, including the original Little Nellie, the compact autogyro flown by Sean Connery in You Only Live Twice (1967), as well as posing for that perfect Instagram shot in a virtual cockpit that’ll see you seated at the controls of the Wallis WA-116 Agile autogyro – pretty cool.
The final space takes the form of Moneypenny’s office complete with filing cabinets showcasing iconic memorabilia from the six decades of James Bond films. Here, you’ll be able to uncover Bond’s passport from GoldenEye (1995), his government Whitehall ID from Skyfall (2012) and a gold bar from Goldfinger (1964) signed by Sean Connery. As well as the inhaler belonging to Le Chiffe in Casino Royale (2006), the metal teeth of towering henchman Jaws from The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) and the steel-rimmed bowler hat worn by Oddjob in Goldfinger (1964).
The experience has been designed to celebrate the release of The Macallan James Bond 60th Anniversary Release.
The collection includes six limited-edition bottles of single malt Scotch whisky to mark six decades of Bond films. The whisky has been created by The Macallan’s Master Whisky Maker, Kirsteen Campbell. Capturing the essence of Bond’s character, it’s a single malt with extreme grace balanced by remarkable strength and depth of character. The expression is presented in six individually designed bottles, one for each decade of the film franchise featuring original illustrations from the film archives.
Perfect for any Bond lover or whisky sipper combined, this is a must-see, immersive experience to visit this month.
