H. Upmann Celebrates its 180th Anniversary

H. Upmann Marks its 180th Anniversary with a Limited Edition Cigar & Humidor Release

Unveiling at the Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show, March 22-25 in Las Vegas

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – In a remarkable celebration of its historic journey, Altadis U.S.A. is honored to commemorate the 180th anniversary of the esteemed H. Upmann cigar brand. Since its inception in 1844, H. Upmann has stood as a beacon of quality and craftsmanship in the cigar industry. This year, to mark this milestone, Altadis U.S.A. will introduce the limited-edition H. Upmann 180th Anniversary cigar at the PCA Trade Show in Las Vegas.

Reflecting on 180 years of legacy, the H. Upmann brand was founded by Herman Upmann, a German banker who ventured into Havana, Cuba, with a vision that transcended banking and embraced the art of cigar making. Alongside his brother August, Herman Upmann crafted a brand that has endured through centuries, celebrated for its dedication to the cigar craft.

The Anniversary Editions

The celebration includes the release of a special Churchill size cigar, measuring 50 X 7, available in a 10-count box. This release is limited to just 5,000 boxes, making it a collector’s item for aficionados. In addition, Altadis U.S.A. will offer 180 special-edition, numbered humidors, each containing 50 exclusive cigars in a 50 X 6 Toro size, further honoring this significant anniversary.

A Collaboration of Masters

The 180th Anniversary blend is the result of a unique collaboration between Rafael Nodal and AJ Fernandez. It features a medio tiempo wrapper from a hybrid seed, subjected to an enhanced fermentation process. This collaboration has resulted in a blend that embodies rich flavors and a multidimensional complexity, showcasing the best of Nicaraguan tobaccos.

Rafael Nodal, Head of Product Capability for Tabacalera USA, commented, “The 180th Anniversary of the H. Upmann brand is a monumental occasion. We are delighted to present this exceptional cigar, a testament to the brand’s enduring legacy and its constant pursuit of perfection.”

A Nod to Luxury and Craft

In line with H. Upmann’s reputation for excellence, the brand has partnered with luxury bespoke hat maker, Wild Hats, to create an exclusive H. Upmann 180th Anniversary fedora style hat. These limited-edition hats will be available at the Altadis U.S.A.’s booth (#7079) at the PCA trade show, further celebrating the brand’s storied heritage.
