United Cigar’s La Gianna Havana brand has received a packaging upgrade. The new packaging is coinciding with the 25th anniversary of the brand. The company says the new packaging is now shipping nationwide.

La Gianna Havana was originally released in 1994. At the time, David Garofalo, owner of Two Guys Smoke Shop in New Hampshire commissioned the cigar to be made to celebrate the birth of his daughter Gianna. Eventually the cigar was moved into Garofalo’s distribution arm, United Cigar for national availability.

Both the La Gianna Natural and the La Gianna Maduro have received the packaging upgrade. The packaging was designed by Nelson Alfonso of Selected Tobacco whose brands are also distributed by United Cigar.

Production for La Gianna Havana is handled out of Diadema Cigars de Honduras, S.A. Presented in 20-count boxes, the cigars are available in six sizes: Bambin (4 x 44,); Corona (5 1⁄2 x 44); Robusto (5 x 50); Toro (6 x 54); Torpedo (6 x 52); and Churchill (7 x 48). Pricing is set at $6 to $8 MSRP.

Retail prices range from $6 to $8 per cigar, sold in boxes of 20.
