Zapaca Rum Team Up with Luar to Bridge the Worlds of Luxury Spirits and Fashion with Limited-Edition Hosting Kit

“A Vibrant Celebration of Heritage, Innovation and a Shared Vision.”

In homage to the inspirational women in Luar Founder, Raul Lopez’s life, the beloved Brooklyn-based designer has teamed up with luxury rum brand, Ron Zacapa to design an exclusive seven-piece bar kit in a unique twist on the label’s now-iconic ‘Ana bag’.

Identifying the pair’s shared Latino roots as a cause for their mutual commitment to craftsmanship and heritage, the unlikely collaboration arrives as a tribute to skilled female Mayan artisans. Marrying high fashion aesthetics and traditional weaving techniques, the limited-edition endeavour is defined by the Guatemalan brand’s handmade petate trim, which typically adorns each of its bottles and now adorns each of these bags.

Celebrating the crown jewel of Zacapa’s portfolio, Zapaca XO, the collection is comprised of a glass decanter with a signature leather and Perate sleeve, a custom shaker, a cocktail spoon, linen cocktail napkins, and leather and Petate coasters. Topped with the Ana bag’s instantly recognisable circular handle, the empowering partnership is rooted in culture, community and craft.

On the collaboration, Raul Lopez says, “I’m beyond excited to introduce this incredible collection, a true game-changer for those moments we gather to celebrate in style. Collaborating with Zacapa has been an enriching experience, a celebration of our shared Latino heritage and a tribute to the roots that ground us. The craftsmanship of the incredible women of the Petate weaving communities fills me with immense respect. It’s an honour to weave their craft into my designs. Knowing that Zacapa supports over 700 female artisans in this tradition makes me incredibly proud to highlight their beautiful work in our collaboration.”

Sam Salameh, Vice President of Zacapa at Diageo North America echos Raul’s sentiments, saying, “Zacapa is thrilled to join forces with Raul Lopez of Luar…this collaboration is more than just a limited edition collection; it’s a vibrant celebration of heritage innovation and a shared vision that captivates and inspires.”
