Fourth La Casa del Habano Opens in the United Kingdom

A fourthhas been opened in Knutsford, England. This is also the second one to be opened by C.Gars Ltd, joining its Chester store opened in 2014.

At a sold-out event and guests were also joined by Mr. Guillermo Perera, Press and Culture Counsellor of the Cuban Embassy in the UK, to enjoy an evening of celebration and fine Havana cigars. During the opening ceremony the honour of cutting the ribbon was shared by Yadira Bulnes (Hunters & Frankau’s Corporate Director) and Ron Morrison (C.Gars Ltd President).

The shop has a substantial walk-in humidor with client lockers on the ground floor and a comfortable sampling lounge on the first floor.

The full range of La Casa specialities including Colección Habanos books and humidors supplement the comprehensive selection of Havana cigars on offer, from every Habanos brand.

Mitchell Orchant, Managing Director of C.Gars,  said that opening a second La Casa del Habano would allow the group  to continue  the growth in Havana cigars sales and would enable them to have additional availability of La Casa specialities to satisfy their customers’ insatiable demand for the finest cigars in the world.

La Casa del Habano is the name of a network of retail cigar stores franchised by Habanos s.a. There are over 140 La Casa del Habano stores throughout the world on five continents. A full list can be found on the franchise's global website at www.lacasadelhabano.com
Limited Edition. Special productions of Habanos made annually using fillers, binders and wrappers aged at least 2 years before the cigars are made. The wrappers come from the top leaves of the shade-grown (tapado) tobacco plant, which are darker in colour. Boxes can be identified by an extra black and gold seal indicating that they contain Limited Edition Habanos and the year in which they were released. Each Habano is dressed with an extra band giving the same information.
Totally by hand. A description created in Havana to differentiate between Cuban methods of making cigars by hand from the semi-mechanised metods used elsewhere that can legally be described as "Hecho a Mano" or "Hand Made".
