Cayman Cigar Company, a company based in the Cayman Islands, has recently released its latest line, The Beacon. It’s a cigar that the company says is the first to feature tobacco grown on Grand Cayman – and one that takes advantage of the company’s unique charity endeavors.

Based in Grand Cayman, Cayman Cigar Company was founded by American philanthropist Granger Haugh and John Lemuel “Lem” Hurlston, a native Caymanian, noted author, and distinguished civil servant. The company has a very unique mission as it donates all net profits to charity.

As for the cigar, The Beacon is named for Beacon Farms in North Side, Grand Cayman, where the Caymanian tobacco is cultivated. Cayman Cigar Company partners with Beacon Farms, which provides agriculture-based careers for Caymanians who have embraced sobriety. One of the projects of the partnership was to develop this Caymanian tobacco varietal for use in Cayman Cigar Company’s products.

The Beacon comes in one size – a 50 x 5 1/4 Robusto. The cigars are packaged five to a box. The production is small with only 100 boxes made. Each hand-numbered numbered box includes a Certificate of Authenticity and is signed by Master Rollers Barbara Garcia and Maria Hernandez. Pricing is set at KYD $125.00 (Cayman Islands Dollars) or USD$150.00. Due to the extremely limited production, these cigars are only available in Grand Cayman through select island retailers and the company’s cigar store.
