Released in 2012 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Trinidad’s independence, 20 decanters of the rum were put up for sale for £20,000 a piece. Each 500ml crystal and silver decanter, specially created by Asprey of London, the jewellers to Prince Charles, is protected by a wooden box lined with silk and velvet and covered by soft red calf leather. Its stopper is made of sterling silver and depicts a rare Trinidadian butterfly resting on sugar cane. Currently the ‘world’s most expensive rum’ Legacy by Angostura is made up of rums aged for at least 17 years and each decanter comes with a US$25,000 price tag.
