French Cigar Hedon Debutes On International Markets

The region of Béarn, in south-west France, is best known for its picturesque villages and countrysideforests, rivers, lakes and, of course, for its excellent food and wine.
Not many are aware that Béarn, which once belonged to the Navarre kingdom, is also the home of Hedon, the one and only premium cigar-maker, working exclusively with 100% French tobacco grown here. Hedon’s history dates back to 1999, when, for the first time, the idea of introducing cigar tobacco cultivation to this area and of setting up a small luxury hand-made production became reality thanks to a group of French entrepreneurs. Since the start of the first tobacco plantation in Navarre, exclusively dedicated to premium cigars, it has taken twelve years of research and experimentation to develop the optimal type of tobacco and master a perfect production technique. The following years were employed to make the cigar production chain more efficient and more sustainable, introducing advanced irrigation technologies in the fields and energy-saving systems in production facilities.
In 2015, backed by a small team of passionate shareholders and supported by the competence of expert artisans, a new management team brought new energy to the project in order to develop the brand on international markets. Today, Hedon intends to share its expertise and vision with the most demanding cigar lovers worldwide through a premium cigar range of unique and unparalleled quality. Fillers, binders and wrappers are all from the Pyrenean Piedmont.
