Drew Estate Florida Sun Grown

Jeff Borysiewicz’s Florida Sun Grown (FSG) is now going national. Drew Estate has announced the FSG brand will be available to its Drew Diplomat (preferred) retailers. The FSG brand will also be showcased at the Drew Estate booth at the 2017 IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas.

FSG features tobacco grown at Borysiewicz’s Clermont, Florida farm. Borysiewicz is best known as the founder and owner of Corona Cigar Company. Last year, the FSG brand was launched as a shop exclusive to the Corona Cigar Company stores. All of the vitolas of FSG, including the FSG Limited Edition Trunk Press, will be available to Drew Diplomat retailers.

In a press release announcing FSG going national Borysiewicz commented, “Drew Estate’s commitment to the American tobacco movement is unmatched. From the Connecticut River Valley, to barns in Kentucky, and to my farm in Clermont, Florida, nobody supports American leaf farmers like Drew Estate. Since 2010 I’ve pioneered the resurgence of Florida tobacco, believing that consumers in the United States would be excited to bring American tobacco agriculture back to the forefront. When I purchased the land for our farm, I spent countless hours analyzing the temperature, sunlight, wind, humidity, and altitude that would bring my farm as close to the conditions of Pinar del Rio, Cuba as possible. These are very exciting times for this farm and for American tobacco.”

Meanwhile Jonathan Drew, President and co-Founder of Drew Estate commented, “My friendship with Jeff spans almost 20 years. When Jeff first approached me about his idea to bring Florida tobacco back to the premium cigar industry I promised him that Drew Estate would stand by his side, just as we have done with the farmers in Connecticut and Kentucky. Pioneering anything is never easy, but what Jeff and his entire company have done is a truly breakthrough innovation. Drew Estate is genuinely committed to American tobacco.”
