In the movie SkyFall (2012), Gareth Mallory (played by Ralph Fiennes) and M (Judi Dench) both drink Courvoisier VSOP cognac. First Mallory pours both himself and M a glass in his office, and later M pours herself a glass in her apartment. A bottle of Courvoisier can also be spotted in the bar where Bond drinks the 'scorpion' shot.

Courvoisier VSOP (Very Superior Old Pale) is a blend of cognacs up to 10 years old from two of the finest crus in the Cognac region. It’s been expertly crafted using a minimum of 50% Grande Champagne grapes blended exclusively with Petite Champagne grapes, entitling it to carry the prestigious ‘Fine Champagne’ designation.

The bottle seen in Mallory's office is the same as or similar to the one pictured on the left, with the large black label and gold seal in stead of the black seal, but this is hard to see in the film which bottles are used by Mallory and later by M in her apartment.

Other drinks in the same film include The Macallan whisky and Heineken beer.

A Courvoisier bottle is broken and used by James Bond in the film Diamonds Are Forever to set Mr. Kidd on fire (read more).

In Diamonds Are Forever, when Wint and Kidd attempt to kill Bond at the end on the cruise liner, one of the drink bottles on the kitchen carts is Courvoisier. It is what Bond uses to spread the fire on Kidd.
