In recent years, there have been many innovations in the area of packaging, but above all the ceramic and glass jars, in which new productions are now presented, have become veritable musthaves for passionados and collectors.
In the past few issues of Cigar Journal we’ve been on the exciting discovery journey of tracing the wonderful ceramic jars – from Habanos S. A. as well as the various distributors worldwide. In this issue we’ll dedicate ourselves to the history of crystal jars, also better known as glass jars or “glass office jars.”
To enrich their collections and supplies, many cigar lovers and collectors are always on the lookout for rare cigars or cigars that have been taken out of production. One brand whose cigars are highly sought after is Davidoff, and especially the Havana cigars from the production period in Cuba.
In 2011, Diadema S.p.a. convinced Habanos S.A. to bring back to life an old and Cuban prestigious brand that had been discontinued for more than twenty years: “La Escepción”.
Alfred Dunhill entered the international floor of the cigar world in the distant year 1907, when he opened his first shop in London’s Duke Street. The store was well-stocked and, alongside Cuban cigars, also had a large selection of pipes and pipe tobacco. In view of the great response that his first tobacco store received, he decided to open a second one in London, in the Soho district.
On a beautiful February morning in Havana while smoking a good cigar, I happened to meet a friend from Italy. After a while, he asked me whether I wanted to personally meet Eduardo Rivera Irizarri, a man who is inextricably connected with the Cuban cigar.
These humidors reserved for diplomats do not appear in any official catalogs. However, their history has been able to be reconstructed with the help of collectors, and experts on Cuba’s cigar history.
Diadema S.p.a., the sole importer and distributor of Habanos cigars in Italy, has started distributing the new and exclusive H. Upmann Magnum 56 jar.
