Bollinger 007 Bullet Magnum 1999

I got an email today from Champagne Gallery, that featured what can only be described as a pretty unique bottle of wine. Here is the blurb from Champagne Gallery:

On the occasion of the release of Quantum of Solace, Champagne Bollinger has commissioned the French designer Eric Berthes to create a collectors item which would mark the association between the House and Her Majesty's Secret Agent. The concept is that of the bullet of a gun (in the spirit of the Walther PPK) and lying on a carbon covered base.

The bullet, which has an impressive size (about 65cm) contains a magnum of Bollinger Grande Annee 1999 dressed in black and silver. Once the magnum is released from the cradle, the inside of the bullet converts into a set of compartments in which a gentleman may store his personal accessories. The Bullet closes with a leather garnished key

Extremely Limited!!

Only (200+ 007) copies of this collectors item, each individually numbered, were produced.

If you have money to burn, this sure would be a talking point at your next party. I wonder what "personal accessories" a gentleman such as Mr Bond would store inside it? And how could you ever bring yourself to drink it? By the way, it's on sale for the bargain price of $7,007.00.

If you want one, you better get your Aston Martin over to Champagne Gallery quick smart.
