CCB and Punch Cigars Announce New Collaboration
Cigar City Brewing and Punch have teamed up to create a duo of medium bodied smokes. Called “Cigar City Brewing Maduro by Punch,” the cigars will be available at select liquor chains across the U.S. starting this month, with a larger rollout slated for early 2022. They can also be found in our Spruce Street Taproom in Tampa, FL.
Handmade at the HATSA factory in Danli, Honduras, Cigar City Brewing Maduro is a Honduran Puro, made with a Honduran Habano maduro wrapper, a Honduran Habano binder, and a combination of Honduran Habano fillers grown in various regions around the country. The rich and heady blend was crafted to complement the malty sweetness of Cigar City Brewing’s award-winning beers.
The experience of Cigar City Brewing Maduro by Punch brings forth notes of earth and wood, with hints of black cherry and cocoa. The blend pairs beautifully with malt-forward beers and is an exceptional cigar on its own.
“One of my first craft loves was beer so I was very excited to work with Cigar City Brewing,” said Ed Lahmann, senior brand manager of Punch. “We’re both masters of our craft creating bold, balanced, and highly-regarded products, so it was the ideal partnership for us to create a cigar for beer lovers. The use of the Habano leaves grown in the fertile valleys of Honduras accentuates the savory beers of Cigar City 100%. This cigar pairs beautifully with the Cigar City portfolio of beers, and also stands strong on its own, with the perfect balance of complexity and versatility.”
Cigar City Brewing Maduro by Punch is available in two sizes, each packaged in 20-count wooden boxes featuring the iconic Cigar City Brewing logo.
