The new Heinken/ James Bond Star bottle.

Heineken fans may still be angry about the massive product placement deal with the James Bond franchise, but everyone can agree that the new Bond-themed bottles are pretty sweet. 

The Drinks Business reports that the "Star Bottles," including a special Skyfall logo, will be available in New York markets starting this month, and nationwide by March.  According to a release, "The bottle also features an embossed thumb groove that improves grip and encourages people to hold the bottle at a lower point, keeping the beer colder."

The Bond/Heineken deal cost a reported $45 million for the Dutch brewer to star in the movies, but that's not the only drink Bond has had over the years. Check out the full lineup of Bond drinks here
