After years of exhibitions, tastings and postponed releases, Cigar in the Bottle is now available in liquor stores and lounges across the country.
The concept of Cigar in the Bottle is simple: a bottle is hand-blown with a glass chamber in its core. A Fuente Fuente Forbidden X cigar is inserted and sealed in the chamber while the bottle holds a Grand Pommier XS Calvados, which is an apple brandy, creating the illusion of the cigar being immersed in the alcohol when it is actually perfectly preserved. The bottom of the chamber is sealed with a Humidipak, ensuring the freshness of the cigar inside.
Retailing for $300, Cigar in the Bottle is intended for high-end establishments and casinos.
