Villiger Cigars Opens Signature Lounge In Santo Domingo

Villiger Cigars celebrating their 130 year Anniversary unveiled the first ever Villiger Lounge in the Americas. The ABAM Cigar Factory in Santo Domingo (manufacturer of all Dominican made Villiger cigars) is home base, to the first of a series of Lounges, to open in the near future.

The ABAM Factory owned by Jose “Matias” Maragoto worked closely with Chairman of the board Heinrich Villiger to create the Cigar Aficionado’s 2017 number 10 ranked Villiger La Flor De Ynclan cigar. It was felt that the next evolution for Villiger Cigars was to express the “Villiger lifestyle” by way of signature cigar lounges in key markets. It is fitting that the flagship signature Lounge would be located, where the first ever handmade [premium] Villiger cigars were created over 20 years ago.

Rene Castañeda, President of Villiger Cigars North America said:” We at Villiger Cigars look forward to entertaining members of the media, friends, and colleagues at the Villiger Lounge at the ABAM Factory. We are in the midst of planning the initial Villiger Cigar Lounge and ABAM Factory tours which will commence in the near future.”

Visitors can arrange an ABAM factory tour. This includes a walking tour of the facility, seven cigars, and drinks at the Villiger Lounge. The cigar selection includes Villiger’s La Flor de YnclanLa LibertadVilliger 1888, and the Villiger Kreme.
