TEQUILA gets a new lease of LIFE Story by Charlie Burton Consider the archetypal tequila entrepreneur: Y-chromosomed and with a number of years under their belt. That’s why a new premium tequila, Satryna, is causing a stir – the force behind it is 24-year-old businesswoman Nitzan Marrun. Made exclusively from blue weber agave grown in the volcanic soils of Jalisco, near Guadalajara, Mexico, her product has come to the UK in two forms: the Satryna Blanco (triple distilled), which offers notes of honey, petals and citrus, and the Satryna Cristalino (añejo claro), which foregrounds oakiness and vanilla. Murrun is drawing on generations of knowhow by partnering on the venture with the “maestra tequilera” of one of Mexico’s great distilleries, Tequilera Newton, but the presentation speaks to modernity. The bottle design depicts the…

Cushion-shaped wristwatches are about as millennial as it gets in the world of fine watches. Initially popularised by Panerai in the Forties (the marque made its name producing timepieces for the Italian navy), there’s a fluidity and nonconformity that makes them eternally adaptable and means they can be worn as well with a suit and tie as with sportier get-ups – and what’s more millennial than transcending dress codes? The best of the current generation of cushion watches (not to be confused with more refined “tonneau” watches) is Gucci’s brilliantly bonkers new Grip, which is fair on the wallet and sick (that’s millennial for good, right?) on the wrist.…

how to write a business memoir

Dear Leader, Well, we’ve reached that time of the year again. The chill of winter is in the air; it’s time to procure the Christmas tree, break out the tweeds and the cable-knits, ferry the yacht to the Caribbean and start thinking about hotel reservations for Davos. Such is the life of a sky king. It’s also that time of the year when the publishing industry unveils its annual tranche of master of the universe business autobiographies. Among the many initial public offerings this time are memoirs from Disney’s Bob Iger, Salesforce’s Marc Benioff and Stephen Schwarzman, founder of The Blackstone Group. Perhaps you picked up one of these books at Heathrow on your way to BA’s Concorde Room in Terminal 5. Or maybe you found one lurking at the bottom of the…

kinky boots

Drag Race fever has officially taken control. Not only has the original version of the show hit an extraordinary eleven series (not even Friends managed that), but the recently released UK version, which launched on BBC Three, has received universal acclaim for its smutty, irreverent tone. With such extraordinary reach, it should hardly come as a surprise that our fashion choices are beginning to be influenced by this most flamboyant of shows and its Amazonian protagonist, RuPaul. Take, for instance, the current heavy-duty boot trend. Designed as much for metal heads of old as for drag queens from outer space, there’s a rompy, stompy brilliance to this new breed of boot that is one part unapologetic and two parts fabulous. Worn moodily with layers of black (à la Daniel Lee’s…

punks, mullets, deer hearts and rifles: george mackay, uncut

On the one hand, Sam Mendes’ hotly anticipated First World War drama 1917 is a simple tale. It follows two soldiers, Schofield (George MacKay) and Blake (Dean-Charles Chapman), who are entrusted with a message that, if successfully delivered, will save the lives of 1,600 of their fellow soldiers, among them Blake’s brother. On the other hand, it’s a vastly complex technical challenge, filmed to make it appear as if the entire movie is one continuous shot. This involved long takes of up to eight minutes in which every single movement of every actor had to be blocked out in microscopic detail, a little like those addictive domino falls you see on YouTube. So, imagine this: it’s action time on set and each individual shell hole has been filled with the precise amount…
