The XI Habanos Day in Russia gathered more the 250 professionals of the industry and cigar enthusiasts in the city of Ekaterinburg on last Friday, June 4th.
At the event, the second release of the Art Nouveau Series – Ramon Allones Hermitage Edición Regional Rusia 2017 was presented along with other surprises. The limited series of 100 numbered jars containing 10 cigars each was a result of a partnership between Top Cigars Corporation (official Habanos distributer for Russia) and Cigar Cult LLC (Habanos Specialist since 2010).
The Ramon Allones Hermitage (ring gauge 52 por 140mm – Genios) Edición Regional Rusia was launched in 2017 in a serie of 6,000 boxes of 10 cigars. The idea was to sell the remaining 1,000 cigars from the Habanos Warehouse uniting cigars and art.
The design of this new release was inspired by the painting “Landscape with Red Roof” by Alexej Jawlensky (1864-1941), presented in the collections of the Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburgh. Each jar was decorated by porcelain artists in the famous town of Gzhel which is 50km from Moscow.
The jar number 001 was auctioned at the XI Habanos Day for 300,000 rur (approx. 4,100 usd). The regular sales will start on June 14th exclusively through La Casa del Habano and Habanos Specialist stores around the country.
The release is likely to be even more demanded than the first one in 2020 because Cigar Cult LLC agreed to tokenize 50 jars to be sold at the NFT Marketplace by Binance (world leading cryptocurrency exchange) on June 24th.
Another release presented at the XI Habanos Day was the new Regional Edition dedicated to Russia, the Quai D’Orsay Acuerdo ER Rusia (ring gauge 52 por 125mm – Petit Belicoso). The cigars will came in 6,000 numbered boxes of 10 cigars.
