The adage that good things come in small packages receives consummate validation with Robb Vices, a carefully curated gift box of exceptional sensorial experiences. Through our licensing agreement with Virtuous Vices LLC, founded by Robb Report Media’s former vice president Daniel Curtis, the monthly membership club will cultivate the connoisseur lifestyle with regular infusions of gourmet food, wine, spirits, and products—all from boutique brands and elite artisans.
“Through our magazine, website, and numerous events, Robb Report lets people know what is the best of the best in luxury products and lifestyle,” says Stephen Colvin, CEO of Robb Report Media. “With Robb Vices you can now receive a selection of exclusive, must-have products that reflect Robb Report‘s own standards of luxury, delivered straight to your home.”
By forging a collective experience based on exclusivity, a bond is built over appreciation for excellence. “Our aim is to give members a reason to celebrate on a monthly basis,” Curtis says. “The definition of luxury that we really focus on is experiential: what to eat, drink, and share together in order to enhance a moment.”
In the past, Curtis has collaborated with renowned chefs such as Daniel Boulud and Marcus Samuelsson to help cull collections that have also included sumptuous sundries from Noir Caviar, Lalique, Master & Dynamic, Clase Azul, Highland Park, and Metaphora. One prized package contained a tape measure and swatches of handwoven Honduran fabric in order to have a bespoke hat made by the master milliners at Worth & Worth.
In May, the case contained exquisite examples of craftsmanship born from natural elements. Inside was a bottle of Glenmorangie single-malt Scotch, aviator sunglasses framed in ebony (and made specifically for members) by Finlay & Co., and a selection of chef Samuelsson’s Ambessa tea paired with his recipe on how to infuse it in simple syrup for use in cocktails.
“Every box has a theme,” Curtis explains. “We meet innovators with items that inspire us with their quality and authenticity, and then we create a tactile story complemented by a beautifully written explanation.”
Priced on either a month-to-month or annual basis, the sybaritic subscription comes at a cost of about $75 and $720, respectively. (robbvices.com)
