On October 26th, 2013, Switzerland celebrated its first Habanos Day that was successfully organized by Intertabak, A.G., the official distributor of Habanos cigars. More than 180 retailers, aficionados and experts from the local cigar community gathered at the Giardino Verde Zurich, a greenhouse location offering a stylish caribbean ambience. Special guests included Swiss cigar media representatives, Intertabak’s Board of Directors and the Cuban Ambassdor to Switzerland, Mrs. Maria del Pilar Fernandez Otero.

Also, the guests took part in an auction for one old box of Alfred Dunhill Havana Club, aged Cuban cigars from 1986, as well as for three exquisite bottles of Havana Club Rums, whose proceeds were fully donated to the charity organization Camaquito.
Montecristo Petit Edmundo, Ramón Allones Specially Selected and Partagás Serie E No. 2 were chosen vitolas offered to the guests during the workshop programms and the evening. The attendees also had the opportunity to enjoy special drinks and traditional Cuban rums such as Melazas, Aguardiente and Seleccion de Maestros.
