Australian poet Peter Boyle featured in this collector’s edition.

(Sydney, 25th of June, 2018) Flor de Caña rum announced today the launch of a special edition of its Flor de Caña 12 Years and Flor de Caña 18 Years ultra-premium rums under the name “Legacy Edition”.  Available beginning July 2018, this special edition collection pays tribute to artists from around the globe through painting and poetry. The exterior packaging design features a spectacular original painting by Nicaraguan artist Augusto Silva and includes a book with a poetic anthology selected by Honduran poet Rolando Kattan, consisting of 49 poets representing 38 countries in 16 original languages.

The original artwork by Augusto Silva featured on the exterior packaging showcases his artful interpretation of the San Cristobal volcano, the most active in Nicaragua, which has become so iconic to the Flor de Caña brand for being the place where its rums are born and aged. The fertility of its soil, the volcanic climate to which the barrels are exposed during the ageing process and the enriched volcanic water contribute in creating singularly smooth and deliciously balanced rum.

In addition to the artful packaging, the “Legacy Edition” contains a poetry book with the work of internationally renowned poets from the five continents where Flor de Caña is available, including countries such as China, Russia, United States, countries from Latin America, Cañada, Europe and Australia. Representing Australia, the book features poems from Peter Boyle, internationally renowned Sydney poet and translator of poetry.  Peter has written 7 books and won numerous awards for his work.

On the 25th of June, 2018, Peter will speak at the oficial Legacy gift pack launch event held at the Lobo Plantation from 6pm in the presence of executives of Flor de Caña Rum, International Commercial Manager, Cristina Casado, Regional Manager Asia Pacific, Tanny Szeto and top executives of Australian distributor, Vanguard Luxury Brands.

The Flor de Caña “Legacy Edition” was developed to raise awareness and honour diversity in a world with countless languages, where poetry has the power to unite people under a single, universal language. The notions of time and geography are disrupted in the same way that Flor de Caña brings people together at the table with its extraordinary flavour and more than 125-year history.
