Fratello Cigars has announced the fourth installment of its regional state exclusive series, the Fratello Florida.
The Fratello Florida has been launched at ABC Fine Wine and Spirits locations in Florida. Produced out of the La Aurora factory in the Dominican Republic, the blend consists of a Habana 2000 wrapper over a Dominican Olor binder and Dominican Corojo Seco, Criollo ’98 and Piloto Cubano ligero. Fratello Florida is being offered in one size – a 5 x 50 Robusto. The cigars will be presented in 20-count boxes. Initial production is set to 10,000 cigars. Pricing is set at $8.00 per cigar.
“The Fratello Florida is a cigar I had worked on years ago with Manuel Inoa from La Aurora, using all Dominican Tobacco. I finally found the wrapper that would fit this cigar so that the consumer in Florida finds a plethora of flavors, aromas and balance, commented Fratello owner Omar de Frias in a press release.
“Our state series keep expending as more and more of our customers are seeing a great value in giving their clientele a customized experience thru our blends and branding,” added De Frias.
Chris Gwaltney of ABC Fine Wine and Spirits commented, “We at ABC are always looking for ways to connect with our customers and bring them the best experience when they come into our stores. When Omar brought us this project it was a perfect fit. “
