Champagne Bollinger has said that it expects its recently-released James Bond gift boxes to make a significant contribution to what are forecast to be record sales this year.

Launched ahead of the release of new Bond film, Skyfall, the gift box contains Bollinger's 2002 vintage and is designed in the shape of the silencer of the Walther PPK gun carried by the secret agent. The packaging is opened by keying in the code 007.

The Champagne house estimates that the Bond bottles are set to account for 20% of the 3% to 5% growth it is forecasting in sales this year, following an 8% rise in 2011.
