I’m pleased as punch to be one of the contributors to the premiere issue (and beyond) of Robb Report VICES, the all-new fortnightly digital platform (the second and fourth Friday each month) from Robb Report.
Created and launched by Publisher Daniel Curtis, Vices joins the enviable CurtCo Robb Media portfolio of leading luxury lifestyle publications that includes the flagship magazine, Robb Report, and its 11 foreign editions.
As Daniel put it in his introduction to Vices, “[This] new publication invites you to celebrate your vices with us. Let’s drink to the notion that cocktails are more than the sum of their ingredients; they are sculptures in a glass. Let’s not be mere whiskey drinkers, but patrons of the art of distilling.” In addition to wine, spirits and mixology, Vices will regularly cover fine dining, hand-rolled cigars, assorted accoutrements and ingredients, as well as related experiences.
Quite different from other Robb Report periodicals, meanwhile, Vices will add a dash of celebrity to go with that dash of bitters and vermouth. The inaugural issue includes an interview with one, actor Hugh Jackman.
In this debut issue, I gave a sneak peek (in collaboration with my esteemed colleague Mr. Brian Dawson) of the preeminent cigar auction ever to hit London, produced by C.Gars Ltd. and held later this fall. CLICK HERE TO READ THE STORY.
Wishing Daniel and everyone at Robb Report the very best with this new launch. Many thanks for making me part of the festivities.
