It was the third IPCPR Trade Show for Bryan Mussard and Cattle Baron Cigars and while this year he didn’t show any new products, the booth certainly had the feel of a company on the rise. Two years ago, Cattle Baron Cigars had a small area as a part of the De Los Reyes booth. This year, it had its own booth and it very much had a feel of a Big Sky country ranch – and it was starting to get the attention of others in the cigar business.
Mussard is a well-known figure in the cattle industry. He currently serves as the President of the Montana Stockgrowers Association. Back in 2016, he decided to venture into the cigar business with his own line of cigars.
The Cattle Baron booth was part of a suite of booths that also consisted of Topper Cigars and De Los Reyes cigars. There is a common thread in that the De Los Reyes factory produces the premium lines for all three companies. In particular, it was Phil Zanghi’s Debonaire House who produced Cattle Baron Cigars’ lines – which is a part of the De Los Reyes factory.
Mussard’s Cattle Baron Cigars’ line consists of a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper, Dominican binder, and a combination of Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers. It is available in five sizes: Cowboy (4 1/4 x 44), Stockyard (5 x 52), Bull (4 1/2 x 58), Trail Boss (6 x 54), and the size introduced last year, Little Doggie (4 x 46). Mussard is quite proud of how these cigars have rated.
Mussard is also in the vodka business and makes a line called Gorgeous Vodka, which was also on display. There are three varietals all of which are made from a base of Idaho potatoes. In addition to the traditional offering, there are two infused flavors: Gorgeous Cranberry Tea Vodka and Gorgeous Jalapeño Infused Pepper. The Cranberry Tea flavor is designed to be paired with Cattle Baron Cigars.
This year, Cattle Baron Cigars also got the attention of Cigar Dave, who filmed a segment as a part of his IPCPR Coverage.
