Peter Boyle, the famed Sydney-based poet, presented the universal poetry collection entitled “Legacy Edition”, which contains the works of 49 poets representing 38 countries in 16 original languages.
The anthology, with a global circulation of 300,000 copies, was created by premium rum brand Flor de Caña to pay tribute to artists around the world.
Boyle, who won the 2017 Kenneth Slessor Prize and was shortlisted for the Adelaide Festival Award for Poetry, is part of this collection with his poem “Robert Frost at Eighty”. Other renowned international artists included in the book are Anthony Phelps (Canada), Richard Blanco (USA), Mario Meléndez (Chile), Jonathan Davidson (UK), Jidi Majia (China) and Chân Phoung (Vietnam).
It has been presented successfully in various countries around the world including Nicaragua, Peru, Bolivia, Panama, Costa Rica, Mexico, China and Vietnam. The universal nature of the anthology, selected by Honduran poet Rolando Kattan, has drawn the attention of poetry and literature fans.
The book is part of a special edition of the Flor de Caña 12 Year and Flor de Caña 18 Year rums. The original artwork by Augusto Silva featured on the exterior 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 aging process and the enriched volcanic water contribute in creating a singularly smooth and deliciously balanced rum.
