Alpha Cigar Company, known for its unique absinthe-infused cigars has a new offering that pays homage to the city which is known as the Absinthe Capital of the United States. Come this July, Alpha Cigar Company will unveil the Alpha Édition New Orleans – a new half Corona offering available in three wrappers.
The Édition New Orleans will be available in three wrapper options: San Andres Maduro, San Andres Claro, and Ecuadorian Connecticut. The blend features an Olor Dominicano binder, and undisclosed fillers. The signature component to the blend is the binder, as this will feature Alpha’s proprietary blend of absinthe. This blend uses a premium French absinthe distilled from 15 different herbs to infuse the binder leaves. The half Corona measures 3 1/2 x 46.
New Orleans is also significant because it is the birthplace of the Sazerac cocktail, which uses absinthe wash in the glass.
The Édition New Orleans joins Alpha Absinthe Infused line and the non-infused line, Defuser as offerings by Alpha Cigar Company.
