Ten years ago, Erik Espinosa founded Espinosa Premium Cigars and opened up his La Zona factory. Now a decade later, his company will celebrate both milestones with the release of two limited edition 10th anniversary cigars. Both cigars will be showcased at the 2022 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show).
The first is the La Zona 10 Year Anniversary cigar. This cigar is a celebration of the La Zona factory, where Espinosa Cigars started making cigars in 2012 when Erik formed his own company. “Everything about this cigar is a tribute, from the cigar blend to the box design and the band. They are all throwbacks to when we first started out,” said Hector Alfonso in a press release.
Made at the La Zona Factory in Esteli, Nicaragua, the cigar is a 6 x 52, Toro, presented in a 30-count box. The blend is Nicaraguan fillers and binder, wrapped in a Brazilian Escuro Alto wrapper. A total of 300 of the La Zona 10 Year Anniversary boxes were made. The La Zona 10 Year Anniversary will retail for $13 MSRP with the 30-count display box at $390 MSRP. The La Zona 10 Year will be shipping to retailers in late August 2022.
The second is the Espinosa 10 Years Anniversary cigar. This cigar is a celebration of the Espinosa Brand. Said Hector Alfonso, “Erik isn’t big about his industry milestones, but me and Erik Jr. are, so we wanted to make yet another special cigar, to celebrate the company’s 10th year in the industry.
“It is hard to believe that it has already been 10 years! We have come such a long way from where we first started; in a little 800 square foot warehouse, without a single cigar to sell, but here we are. I am very proud of what my team and I have been able accomplish,” added Erik Espinosa.
“The Espinosa Cigars and the La Zona Factory were established weeks apart, and we have had working relationship from the very beginning, one that goes well beyond just our partnership. Both the company and the factory have succeeded jointly and individually. We believe it is only fair that both of us can celebrate this milestone together”, said Hector Alfonso.
The Espinosa 10 Years is a 6 x 52, Toro, presented in a 20-count box. The Espinosa 10 Years is a Nicaraguan puro, with Nicaraguan fillers, binder, and a Hybrid Habano wrapper. Only 1,500 of the Espinosa 10 Years Anniversary cigars boxes were made. The Espinosa 10 Years Anniversary will retail for $13 MSRP with the 20-count display box at $260 MSRP and will begin shipping to retailers in late August 2022. The Espinosa 10 Years was blended by Espinosa Premium Cigars, and made at the San Lotano Factory in Ocotal, Nicaragua.
The 2022 PCA Trade Show opens July 9, 2022 in Las Vegas Nevada.
