The Macallan James Bond 60th anniversary Release

DECADE I

The 1960s was a singular decade for James Bond. The debut of the suave spy icon onto the silver screen in 1962 was embodied by the inimitable Sean Connery, who went on to appear in six films across the next ten years. Resting only when George Lazenby starred in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service in 1969, Sir Sean was to roar back in triumph in 1971’s Diamonds Are Forever. 

The pack design includes sketches from Goldfinger (1964), You Only Live Twice (1967) where Little Nellie is in a combat sequence, and the dummy jet pack worn by Bond in Thunderball (1965).

THE BOND ARCHIVE

The distinct range tells the story of innovation over 60 years and the pioneering character attributes of James Bond and The Macallan. Bond is a modern innovator and man of perennial evolution. The Bond films have become closely associated with ingenious 007 gadgets that are used on Bond’s mission to deliver for the greater good; and have become a hallmark of the franchise’s popularity. 

Decade I explores the Bond innovations and archives of the 1960s. The pack design features exclusive original sketches including the Little Nellie combat sequence storyboard from You Only Live Twice (1967), the Interior Fort Knox Set Concept and Laser Room set design from Goldfinger (1964), and a technical drawing of the dummy jet pack worn by Bond in Thunderball (1965).

The working prototype of the jet pack worn by Bond for Thunderball,  ‘Bell Rocket Belt’ was used in the opening title’s flying sequences, flown by test pilot Bill Suitor, and the Bond art department created an exact replica for Connery to wear.

DECADE II

The 1970s saw the rise of Roger Moore’s Bond. He brought different, mischievous facets and humour to the character, cheering up a somewhat dire decade. 

A man for the times, he overcame filmic adversaries with elegant aplomb.  While the business of making movies remained as serious as whisky distilling, he reminded us that life is about enjoyment of the finer, better still the finest, of all that it offers.  

The packaging design includes sketches and storyboards from The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), Stromborg’s Atlantis marine research lab, and various space station concepts from Moonraker (1979).

The sketch of Stromborg’s Atlantis marine research lab was inspired by the Cala di Volpe hotel in Sardinia, Italy, and the hotel itself also featured as a location and set.

DECADE V

Leaving the 90s behind, Daniel Craig embodies the Bond of the noughties. From his first appearance in Casino Royale, never was a card game presented so stylishly and with more tension in any other film. The setting, ingredients, character and dedication to craft combine to deliver an utterly compelling result. 

The packaging design features a dramatic car sequence from Casino Royale (2006), and a digitally sketched rooftop chase in Quantum Of Solace (2008).

DECADE VI

In 2012 Skyfall brought the audience back to James Bond’s childhood home, but also tragically destroyed it. Daniel Craig’s performances endeared further notes of domesticity, deep love and family. 

Making the character more relatable than ever, Craig reveals a vulnerable humanity at Bond’s core, without compromising any trademark resolve or physical capability.  

The packaging design features childhood home Skyfall Lodge in Skyfall (2012), and a Day of the Dead poster from Spectre (2015).

The Day of the Dead poster calls back to the action packed opening sequence in Spectre. Instead of filming Mexico’s popular festival, the production created their own version, taking over Zocalo Square with over 1,500 extras.
