Amongst connoisseurs, Davidoff cigars are a popular choice. Not only do they exude luxuriousness through their slick and sophisticated appearance, but their mild yet exciting flavours offer a smoking experience at the height of pleasure. This year, the renowned cigar brand will be celebrating its 50th anniversary with the release of a custom-made cigar range and a number of special events. In honour of their continuing success, we take a brief look at the history of Davidoff Cigars:
First hitting the market in 1968, Davidoff Cigars bought a fresh new name and face to the industry. Zino Davidoff, a young entrepreneur from Switzerland, was on a mission to unearth new tobaccos and blends in order to make a grand entrance into the cigar world. And grand it was. After achieving great success with his family’s original shop in Geneva, the Davidoff name was transformed into a worldwide brand, with aficionados travelling from across the globe to sample the small store’s offerings. As the brand grew, so did Davidoff’s aspirations and in 1991, he founded a centre for excellence in the Dominican Republic, serving to nurture his creations further and leading to the emergence of some of the brand’s most innovative cigars to date.
Ultimately, Davidoff’s untiring determination and continual energy to uncover an extensive range of unique flavours has remained at the heart of the company, inspiring its master blenders to produce some of the finest quality cigars in the world, and making Davidoff himself a leading industry pioneer. Alongside this, inventing the first ever desktop humidor, which many are now familiar with, also earned him a place in cigar history.
For many at the company, this year marks a well-earned milestone, one which they intend to celebrate in style. Charles Awad, Chief Marketing Officer at Davidoff, said: “This is a very special year for us. We look back with pride on 50 years of creating exceptional, original cigars and accessories, but more importantly, we look forward with a great sense of exhilaration to new, unknown horizons that will bring exciting, undiscovered experiences for those who love cigars.”
To celebrate being in business for five decades, Davidoff will be branding five of their signature cigars with a special 50th anniversary emblem for a limited period, taking inspiration from the classic white Davidoff ring made iconic by some of the company’s earliest creations, including the Ambassadrice of 1968. The cigars selected to feature the 50th anniversary white ring are the Davidoff Signature 2000, Davidoff Signature No 2, Davidoff Aniversario No 3, Davidoff Aniversario Special R and the Davidoff Aniversario Entreacto. Alongside this, a variety of commemorative events will take place throughout the year, inviting cigar lovers from around the globe to join the celebrations.
So, whether you’re an avid Davidoff fan already, or a budding first-timer, you’ll definitely want to sample some of these exclusive cigars, which will soon be available. In the meantime, check out our enticing range of Davidoff cigars and accessories to satisfy your taste buds.
