Tuesday, June 12, 2018 — Miami, FL- Drew Estate announces today the Holiday release of Liga Privada & Undercrown Flying Pigs to Drew Diplomat retailers in the United States for Father’s Day.
The Flying Pig is one of the most sought-after sizes in the company’s portfolio, presented in a 100mm x 60 ring gauge parejo vitola and is a favorite amongst cigar enthusiasts. The shape is based off a photograph of an 1895 cigar salesman’s size selection case. It is one of the most complicated vitolas to manufacture due to the unique size and signature pig-tail, which requires specialized training of the buncheros and rolleras at the factory.
