Daniel Craig will once again take the leading role in Skyfall, the 23rd James Bond film. The martinis are offered each evening, along with the Draycott’s signature nightly champagne service. This new martini takes its name from the catchphrase “shaken, not stirred,” which was first uttered by Sean Connery in the 1964 Bond movie Goldfinger, and has been a notable quote in the 007 series ever since. “James Bond began to show audiences around the world how thrilling the life of an undercover agent could be,” said Melissa Stoman, General Manager of the Draycott Hotel.
Stoman continued, “We are happy to be offering complimentary ‘Shaken, Not Stirred’ martinis to our guests to honor the new Skyfall film and the 50th anniversary of this beloved heroic figure.” The Draycott Hotel offers exceptional and highly personalized service and is perfectly located for guests to experience London’s best attractions, spy-centric or otherwise. Personal touches are important to the hotel, such as the daily offering of complimentary tea and homemade biscuits at 4 pm, champagne and the limited “Shaken, Not Stirred” martini at 6 pm, and hot chocolate at 9:30pm for guests of the property.
