2 March 2021 – A unique decanter of Dictador Generations En Lalique has become one of the most expensive bottles of rum ever sold. Auctioned by Sotheby’s online, Dictador Generations En Lalique achieved the record hammer price of £30,000.

The auction lot included the ‘proof bottle’, handmade and engraved number #0, of 300 Dictador Generations En Lalique decanters; a new limited edition celebrating its global launch today. Designed by Lalique’s Artistic and Creative Director, Marc Larminaux, the decanter is inspired by the magical and mysterious beauty of the Caribbean Sea, with its glinting reflections and the calming soundscapes of beaches lapped by crystalline waters. Larminaux captured this mood by incorporating water patterns and used Lalique’s signature clear and frosted crystal to sculpt the light as it passes through the decanter – crystalised Caribbean spirit.

The liquid treasure housed within this piece of art is a special blend of vintage rums produced in 1976, aged in American Oak and port casks, and made by Dictador’s master blender Hernan Parra and his father Dario – the first time ever that father and son have created an expression together. Named Dictador Generations En Lalique, this edition pays tribute to the Parra family who have been distilling rum in Cartagena since 1913. The recipe is soft and smooth, with tasting notes of caramel, cocoa, roasted honey and coffee.

The decanter auctioned by Sotheby’s also toasts Dictador’s collaboration with Lalique- the very first time that the French crystal maker has created a decanter for a high-end rum brand. It was offered in a one-of-a-kind gift box and accompanied by an illuminated presentation stand. With rare wines and spirits reaching increasingly large values and attracting global investment, Dictador is pioneering aged rum for collecting connoisseurs. The brand owns the world’s largest stock of aged rum, up to 45 years old, allowing Dictador to release a range of innovative, yet fine and rare editions unrivalled by competitors – creating an entirely new luxury category for prestige rums and distributing its award-winning products to more than 80 countries around the world. Dictador Generations En Lalique and the incredible auction result achieved are once more testament to the growth of the fine & rare rum category.

The lot also included personal letters from Master Blender Hernan Parra and Lalique’s Marc Larminaux; a print of the bottle’s original digital rendering signed by the designer; an exclusive invitation to Dictador Art Masters in Cartagena for two and a signed print of artist M-City, curator of Dictador Art Masters. Proceeds from this lot will benefit Art Masters, a charity focused on conservation in the Colombian jungle as well as the propagation of Street Art culture.

The limited-edition decanter is available from today at our Iconic shop; price 15 000,00 Euro.
