The February issue of Brummell, Show Media’s ‘little black book for the City’, is out now and celebrates adventure in its many guises.
Adventure can, of course, mean the search for that latest adrenaline rush or life-affirming experience. To that end, we discover holidays for the intrepid, including a wilderness hike along the Tasmanian coast, training camps in what Bradley Wiggins calls ‘a Scalextric set for cyclists’, and heli- and off-piste skiing in a remote Swiss valley that can be tackled in a weekend.
However, adventure can also mean facing new challenges. Columnist David Charters examines the case for a shake up of the city and suggest a more daring courageous approach to management and leadership. In our regular After The City slot, we meet the mergers and acquisitions specialist who forged a new enterprise to create a luxury luggage range. And we explore the increasingly bold choice of holiday home locations – the international jet set discovers Nova Scotia!
In our adventure accessories special feature, we curate a collection of kit that inspires a stylish adrenaline fix, and we showcase watches inspired by the boundary-pushing worlds of motor racing, scuba diving and the military.
Our Epicure section, added to the Brummell recipe in December, continues this issue with a look at London’s most complex food scene, Japanese restaurants (there’s far more to it than sushi and tempura). Plus there’s adventurous foraging in the New Forest and a selection of the most interesting craft gins.
