In a press release, Ed Lahmann, senior brand manager for Punch cigars said, “Just like a true Bento Box that hits all of the major food groups in one package, our version brings together all of our Zodiac releases in one creative and great looking box. Each of our Zodiac releases were fast sell-outs at retail, due to their fantastic blends and incredible value. Bento Box is being released in a very limited quantity, so they’re sure to be gone in a flash from cigar shops.”
Production for all three cigars is handled at the Honduran American Tobacco S.A. (HATSA) factory in Danlí, Honduras.
