I spent a glorious couple of days in Venice with @thegrittipalace discovering the Gritti Epicurean School, learning about seasonal products from the Venetian lagoon and how to prepare them for my plate. We also stopped by the small island of Mazzorbo where they cultivate their own artichokes. Superb. More in Stories. #thegrittipalace #theluxurycollection

Happy International Women’s Day! Meet Blanca. Blanca is a progressive young woman who has earned financial independence by using the Mayan tradition of 'petate' weaving, passed down from mother to daughter, to create the bands that go around the bottles of Zacapa rum. And her smile is out of this world. In promotional partnership with @zacaparum #InternationalWomensDay

The ‘petate’ bands that decorate the bottles of @zacaparum are hand­woven from dried palm leaves, by women from Guatemalan communities. Petate weaving is a tradition which forms part of Mayan culture – they believe the petate represents the unity between heaven and earth, the sun and the moon, the spiritual and the physical because it is a band with no beginning or end. Today, for over 700 Guatemalan families working to craft petate bands for Zacapa, it represents greater certainty of a better future. #sp #pressforprogress

The petate-adorned Zacapa bottle in its natural environment — where there is Zacapa, there is delicious food. Zacapa's philosophy is about relaxing, savoring each moment with close friends, and that time well spent is the ultimate form of luxury. I couldn't agree more. More time well spent in Stories. In promotional partnership with @zacaparum #PressForProgress

Meet the women who handcraft Zacapa - both for the outside and the inside of the bottle: Lorena, Ana, and Blanca. Through the ancient Mayan tradition of ‘petate’ weaving, Ana and Blanca have created an employment opportunity with Lorena @zacaparum which allows them the financial independence they need to support their families. Ana, pictured in the middle, is using this opportunity to fund her education to become a teacher. She is currently in her last year of studies. #sp #PressForProgress
