For four weeks, from Sunday February 19 2023, the luxury department store in London will exhibit props from the 007 archives to commemorate the release of the Scottish whiskey distillery’s 60th anniversary range of six Bond-themed bottles.

At the heart of the experience is a timeline of original concept art and storyboards chronicling the creative process of the Bond movies, which is also featured on the packaging for The Macallan’s 60th Anniversary single malt.

Other memorabilia on display include Oddjob’s bowler hat from Goldfinger (1964) and Jaws’ metal teeth from The Spy Who Loved Me (1977).

The experience will display a timeline composed of original illustrative designs, concept art and storyboards showcasing the creative development process of the Bond films, also featured on the distinctive packaging of the whisky collection.

The final space takes the form of Moneypenny’s office, with filing cabinets showcasing a retrospective of memorabilia from the six decades of James Bond films. Inside various cabinets, visitors will uncover Bond’s passport from GoldenEye (1995), his government Whitehall ID as seen in SkyFall (2012), a Sean Connery-signed gold bar from Goldfinger (1964), the inhaler belonging to Le Chiffre in Casino Royale (2006), the metal teeth of towering henchman Jaws from The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), and the steel-rimmed bowler hat worn by Oddjob in Goldfinger (1964).

In addition to the Harrods activity in London, a series of similarly curated experiences will take place in selected markets around the world as The Macallan in Cinema exhibit is celebrated across the globe.
