U.K. Hotel Chain Building Cigar Shacks for Its Guests

Many Hotel du Vin locations are building outdoor Cigar Shacks to accommodate their smoking clientele. The initiative is a collaboration between CEO Robert Cook and John Harris of Bothy Lodge Co., a Scotland-based company contracted to build the shacks.
