Villiger Cigars’ revamped Villiger 1888 line will have its official launch this week. The company announced the cigar will begin making its way to retail shops this week and will be highlighted by a special launch event on Friday December 16th, 2016 at Miura Cigars in Miami Florida.
Originally a limited production cigar released to commemorate 120 years of Villiger Cigars, the Villiger 1888 returns with a facelift – receiving all-new packaging as well as new bands. Earlier this year, a “sneak peek” of the Villiger 1888 was held at the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show, and it was also unveiled at InterTabac 2016 in Dortmund Germany.
In a press release announcing the Villiger 1888, Villiger North America President Rene Castaneda stated, “Villiger Cigars has undergone major positive changes in 2016 to include a new distribution center, new personnel and a new business philosophy. We look forward to ending the year on a high note with the release of the Villiger 1888 and we look forward to a prosperous 2017. We thank our supporters, colleagues, and customers for all the support in this past year.”
