To commemorate Hunters and Frankau Anniversary, they have commissioned two hundred and twenty-five, numbered replicas of antique cigar humidor each containing four boxes (100 cigars) of the Ramon Allones Hunters & Frankau Aniversario 225.
The cabinet, every one of which is personally signed by Jemma Freeman, is equipped with two Xikar Crystal humidifiers and comes with one hundred commemorative cigar spills. The lid at the top lifts up to reveal a humidified compartment for dispensing single cigars topped with a ceramic plaque on which the Ramon Allones insignia is emblazoned.
Each humidor is delivered with a complimentary 50cl bottle of very special rum prepared by Havana Club’s master blender Asbel Morales to marry with the taste of the cigar. Also called the Hunters & Frankau Aniversario 225, we thank Havana Club for supporting our celebrations by producing 500 numbered bottles of this precious spirit from selected vintage casks. None will be for sale, but if they were, the value would be some £600 per bottle.
The humidors were manufactured by DeART S.r.l. situated in Calvenzano near Milan in northern Italy. Massimo de Munari, whose family owns the company, has built an enviable reputation over the last five years for making exceptional humidors, which he has supplied to many clubs , restaurants and private homes in Britain.
Jemma Freeman paid a visit to Italy during the production run and was able to witness the extraordinary care and attention to detail that went into the humidors; a fitting compliment to the quality of the cigars that they will contain.
About this cigar: The H. Upmann Sir Winston Gran Reserva 2011 Cigar is a truly unique and highly coveted cigar.
It's vitola, 'Churchill', is one of the most famous vitolas available, which takes its name after Winston Churchill who was hardly ever seen without a cigar. This very popular sized vitola measures 178mm in length by 47 ring gauge.
These rare cigars have been hand rolled by the expert hands of Cuba's torcedors and the tobacco used in these Cuban cigars have been sourced from a crop cultivated in 2011. The tobacco leaves used have been grown in the Pinar del Rio province of Cuba, meaning these cigars are considered to be made from the very best tobacco farms in the world.
This is the first time H. Upmann has been chosen for a Gran Reserva release, so enthusiasts of the brand are very excited about it. Every Gran Reserva cigar contains tobacco which has been aged for a minimum of five years and is then released only when there has been enough tobacco produced. This difference means the production of these cigars are not rushed and only the most premium tobaccos are used.
This is no doubt one of the most anticipated Habanos Gran Reserva Production released since this series began back in 2009. This series comprises specially selected tobacco which is aged a minimum of five years before rolling. Limited in quantity, the cigars have a special second ‘Gran Reserva’ band and come in a recognizable black lacquered box. This Romeo Y Julieta Gran Reserva is a special and unique production of 5,000 individually numbered boxes containing 15 Wide Churchills 'Gran Reserva', each rolled with tobacco from the 2009 harvest. This is truly the cream of Cuban cigars!
