Made especially for the United Kingdom, two gift packs have been put together by Hunters & Frankau (Britain's Cuban cigar distributor) and Habanos S.A., the worldwide distributor of Cuban cigars. The sets comprise three or four cigars packaged in varnished wooden boxes that are protected by a secondary, branded cardboard outer shell. The Cohiba set (pictured) comes with four individually boxed Siglo IV cigars and retails for £79 (about $153). The Trinidad set comes with three Robusto Extra cigars, also individually boxed, and retails for £69 ($134). Only 1,000 boxes of each were made.
