Flor de Gonzalez Launches Cuban Tribute Brand
Posted: May 3, 2010
Flor de Gonzalez, which makes cigars in Hialeah, Florida and Condega, Nicaragua, has launched a brand called 90 Miles by Flor de Gonzalez.
The smoke is made in the boutique company's Nicaraguan factory using filler and binder from Nicaragua, wrapped in a Habano-seed Ecuadoran wrapper.
The cigars started shipping in March. There are four sizes: robusto, toro, Churchill and torpedo, and the cigars retail for $5.50 to $5.90 per cigar.
The inside of the box has a colorful rendition of the red, black and yellow buoy at Key West showing the southernmost spot in the continental United States, which lies only 90 miles from Cuba.
"We're doing this as a tribute to the United States," said Yadi Gonzalez, president of the company.
