Hammer + Sickle

Eric Hanson, founder of Hammer + Sickle vodka, debuted his cigar brand of the same name in 2010. In adopting the symbol of Russia as the cigar's logo, he points out that the hammer and sickle does not represent the Soviet Union (which incorporated a star), but symbolizes Russia's industrial north and agrarian south. For him, it's a heritage symbol and not political. In addition to the core line, the Hammer + Sickle portfolio offers a few extensions, including Hermitage No. 1, Moscow City and Berlin Wall. In 2018, Hanson passed away. Klin Groupe, which owns the Hammer + Sickle brand, plans to continue producing cigars.
