The idea of the partnership came about since the film takes place during the First World War, a time when the English had a huge appreciation for Port Wine.
To get an idea of this love, a curious story even tells that Taylor's, which like many wineries in the Porto region is of English origin, supplied thousands of cases of wine to the soldiers of the Triple Entente formed by England, France and Russia during the Great War. After all, port wine was considered a basic necessity for soldiers on the front line. Because it was strong, tasty and relaxed in moments when relaxation was absolutely necessary
To make the wine, Taylor’s used the winery's special reserve with parts dating back to the 1930s – that is, almost 90 years of aging.
The wine is then bottled in special crystal bottles with gold accents, then placed in a luxurious wooden box. There's more: only 700 units will be sold.
The producer of The King's Man, Matthew Vaughnn, defined the wine thus: “A true Kingsman (reference to a soldier) will never forget to pass Porto on his left, but this Taylor's will certainly test his determination”.
