Daniel Marshall celebrates 35 years in the cigar and humidor business with the launch of a commemorative, limited edition cigar humidor designed to mark the milestone.
The inspiration for the 2017 35th Anniversary Collector’s Edition came from the very first cigar humidor Marshall made in 1982. It was constructed of Macassar Ebony from Sri Lanka for men’s luxury goods company, Alfred Dunhill of London.
“As this summer marked our 35th anniversary of creating affordable luxury, I thought, ‘What could be more appropriate than commemorating this milestone of a life making humidors with a re-creation of that first humidor I made 35 years ago that held a bottle of Dunhill Whisky,’” said Marshall.
The anniversary collector’s piece is also made of the same Macassar Ebony wood as the original and holds 125 cigars. It houses a unique bottle of Glenfiddich 21-year Scotch whisky that is not available in the United States. Each bottle is hand signed in gold by Daniel Marshall and Kristen Grant, the great-great granddaughter of Glenfiddich founder, William Grant. In addition, each humidor will be hand signed and dated by Daniel Marshall with its limited edition number engraved on a golden plate affixed inside the humidor.
“It is extremely rare to be able to collect a bottle of Glenfiddich signed by a direct descendent of the founder, William Grant. Ms. Grant has signed 100 bottles and I am forever grateful,” expressed Marshall.
To compliment the whisky, each humidor will be fitted with two Glenfiddich nosing glasses from Scotland and five, never sold before, DM Red Label Tasting cigars alongside 10 92-rated DM Red Label Churchill cigars. The 35th Anniversary Collector’s Edition humidor is limited to 100 pieces and retails for $1,995 USD.
Daniel Marshall will be hosting a 35th anniversary celebration in collaboration with Glenfiddich, Balvenie and Davidoff of Genève at the Daniel Marshall Cigar Lounge, Kitzbuhel Country Club in Austria on January 20, 2018. Expected guests include customers and friends of DM, European cigar merchants, international film stars, champion skiers, and leaders in business and government.
“I have loved our cigar world for most of my life. This year marks a significant milestone that leaves me humbled and grateful. I would like to thank every DM cigar connoisseur and humidor collector for making it possible for me to realize my dreams,” said Marshall.
