(Miami, Fla.) – Crux Cigars has launched the Union Fire, a new line of cigars that will be available exclusively through the Famous Smoke Shop.
The name Union Fire pays homage to the Union Fire Company. It was a volunteer fire department in Philadelphia, formed with the assistance of Benjamin Franklin in 1736. Known as the “Bucket Brigage,” it was the very first such fire company in the colonies. In the days when wooden structures were highly vulnerable to fire, the formation of this volunteer company of citizens was invaluable. With leather buckets, a few hooks, and ladders, their success resulted in many more fire companies forming, and the results were immediate.
“When we partnered with Famous to create this blend, we wanted to link it to the history of Pennsylvania in some manner. After some research, we decided the history of the Union Fire Company was a perfect match for a new cigar line. The cigar itself is a rich and smokey blend of Nicaragua tobacco,” shared Crux Cigars President Jeff Haugen.
The Union Fire will be available in 10-count boxes.
Robusto 4.875 x 50 $ 6.99 MSRP
Toro 6 x 52 $ 7.80 MSRP
Churchill 7 x 50 $ 8.30 MSRP
The cigars are produced at the Plasencia factory in Esteli, Nicaragua.
