Drew Estate has announced it is bringing back its Chateau Real brand. Chateau Real will be an exclusive offering to Drew Diplomat online retailers. The announcement comes on the eve of Drew Estate’s Florida Barn Smoker event taking place November 11, 2023 in Clermont, Florida.
Chateau Real was Drew Estate’s first foray into traditional cigar making after becoming a powerhouse with infused cigars. The brand was launched in 2006, but eventually was sunset with the rise of Drew Estate’s other premium cigar brands, Liga Privada and Undercrown.
The blend features a Connecticut Shade wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and fillers. The cigars are offered in three sizes – each presented in 20-count boxes: Toro (6 x 50, $134.95 box/$6.75 cigar); Robusto (5 x 50, $129.95 box/$6.50 cigar); and Churchill (7 x 50, $139.95 box/$7.00 cigar)
”Chateau, along with all of its secrets has since become one of the most sought-after ‘Drew Estate Ghosts’ with collectors keeping the brand and its folklore alive. We simply had to resurrect this prince of a brand,” commented Jonathan Drew, Founder and President of Drew Estate in a press release. “I’m absolutely thrilled that we are bringing affordable brands to market … good shit that everyone can afford and feel intelligent purchasing.”
