Alec & Bradley Cigars, founded by second generation cigarmakers and brothers Alec and Bradley Rubin announced today that their highly anticipated third full-scale release, Kintsugi is shipping to tobacconists.
The Alec & Bradley Kintsugi was first announced in March 2020 for release around the 2020 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) trade show in Las Vegas. Subsequently, Covid-19 concerns and shutdowns paused the Kintsugi production and forced the cancelation of the 2020 PCA show.
Since then, Kintsugi’s release date has been closely followed by enthusiasts, tobacconists and the media. An update came in July, when Alec & Bradley announced that Kintsugi would officially be offered for pre-order to tobacconists for a late 2020 delivery. The wait is finally over and Kintsugi is on the move to tobacconists globally!
Alec & Bradley Kintsugi is being presented in 24 count boxes, adorned with a golden filled-in crack pattern. The bands and inside box labels take styling cues from traditional Japanese themes and artwork. Kintsugi is being produced at Alec Bradley’s critically acclaimed Raices Cubanas Factory in Danli, Honduras. Kintsugi will be offered in four sizes: Corona Gorda 5 5/8" x 46 ($7.25), Robusto 5” x 50 ($7.95) , Toro 6” x 52 ($8.80) and Gordo 6” x 60 ($9.85). MSRP is per cigar before any applicable taxes.
As a company we’ve had our ups and downs, but we are proud of the fact that many have come to love and enjoy our cigars. I could sit here and tell you things like “our brand is synonymous with quality” and “we make the best cigars”, etcetera, but the reality is that we just want to make cigars that people can enjoy. The part of our history that really makes us who we are today comes down to a 10-second encounter that changed everything.
