Luxury crystal maker Lalique has created a limited-edition decanter for Dictador. The decanter is said to be inspired by the beauty of the Caribbean Sea, with Lalique Artistic and Creative Director, Marc Larminaux, incorporating water patterns into the design.
Inside the decanter is a blend of vintage rums produced in 1976 and aged in American oak and Port casks, created by Dictador master blender Hernan Parra and his father Dario. It features tasting notes of caramel, cocoa, roasted honey and coffee. The release, Dictador Generations En Lalique, is named for the Parra family, who have been distilling rum in Cartagena since 1913.
Limited to just 300 bottles, the handmade ‘proof bottle’ (0 of 300) decanter reached the highest value ever for a rum during an auction at Sotheby’s last month. It was offered in a bespoke gift box along with letters from Hernan Parra and Larminaux, a signed print of the original digital bottle rendering, an invitation to Dictador Art Masters in Cartagena for two, and a signed print of artist M-City, curator of Dictador Art Masters.
