MIKOŁÓW, Poland, July 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Over 2 years ago, Lalique and Dictador collaborated to create a unique vintage rum, bottled in an extraordinary handmade Lalique crystal decanter – Dictador Generations en Lalique.
With instant success the collection sold out with collectors around the world, desperate to own one of these special pieces of art.
It should come as no surprise that bottles have since changed hands at Sothebys for £30,000.
The irony is that this rum was so good - people could not resist drinking it – which pushed up the price of the unopened bottles.
With only 300 bottles available worldwide and each priced at 25,000 EUR per piece; this exquisite masterpiece of crystal handcraft redefines the standard of excellence in the world of rum.
Bottles are carefully allocated by country, some receiving only 1 bottle for sale for the region.
The vintage rum itself has been hand-crafted by Dictador Master Blender, Hernan Parra, with special involvement from his father Dario. This combination of decades of rum making experience has delivered a rum that sets a new a benchmark for the sector.
The black Lalique crystal decanter, has been designed by Lalique's Artistic and Creative Director, Marc Larminaux. It is adorned with enchanting waves reminiscent of the Caribbean Sea at night, evoking a sense of depth and intrigue. The chiselled artwork brings to mind the gentle sheen of moonlight on the endless expanse of the sea, a true piece of art that is a testimony to Lalique's renowned expertise.
