The first Series 1790 collection is an elegant humidor, containing very rare and special cigars taken from H&F’s reserve of Habanos UK Regional Editions dating from the first in 2005 up to and including the 2017 release.In total there have been seventeen different UK Regional Editions from eight different brands. Collection Number One contains ten cigars of each, and so houses one hundred and seventy cigars in total. The cigars are housed within a bespoke humidor commissioned from Italian humidor makers, DeART S.r.l. Massimo de Munari, whose family owns the company, has built an exceptional worldwide reputation for the quality of his work. He said ‘The challenge was to create a humidor to contain all of these rare cigars, in all of their different shapes and sizes, without compromising the need to store them in perfect conditions.’
Only thirty pieces have been made with each one being individually numbered, and signed by Jemma Freeman, Managing Director of Hunters & Frankau. Each humidor also contains a humidification system to ensure that the cigars are kept in the ideal conditions.
