Hunters & Frankau is delighted to confirm that the United Kingdom has been selected by Habanos SA to host the world launch of the Ramón Allones Allones No.2 Limited Edition 2019.
Unable to host a launch party in the usual fashion, we have decided to try something new. We have offered our key Specialist Retail and Hospitality accounts the opportunity to host their very own virtual launch in smaller, more intimate tastings sessions with their clients.
The goal is for simultaneous virtual launches to take place across the country at precisely 6:30pm on Wednesday 19th August. Subject to government guidelines at the time, and the layout of individual venues, it may be possible for some to conduct their launch ‘in person’ at their venues.
Tasting packs containing everything required for the evening will be provided by Hunters & Frankau to venue/account hosting a launch, The evening will commence with each venue showing a video of Jemma Freeman (Executive Chairman of Hunters & Frankau) and José Antonio Cejas Diaz (Hunters & Frankau Corporate Director) introducing the Ramón Allones Allones No.2.
At this point guests will be invited to light up their cigar and pour their Hine Cigar Reserve Cognac.
Another short film will immediately follow including interviews with key members of the Cuban cigar industry as well as footage of the cigars being rolled in Cuba.
The Ramón Allones Allones No.2 is just the third ever Limited Edition produced by the brand and is a classic Campana size – 5½” (140mm) x 52 ring gauge. The cigars are housed in Special Presentation Boxes (SPB’s) of ten cigars.
The Ramón Allones Allones No.2 will look familiar to some UK Havana smokers as it is the same size and brand Hunters & Frankau selected in 2005 for their first ever Habanos Regional Edition. Combined with the fact that John Hunter, Morris & Elkan Ltd, an antecedent of H&F, owned the Ramón Allones brand from 1911 to 1927, it is no wonder that H&F is so delighted to be hosting this launch.The Ramón Allones Allones No.2 is the second of the 2019 Limited Editions to arrive, following the Montecristo Supremos. The Quai D’Orsay Senadores is expected to arrive later in the year.
More details will follow shortly but we are certain that the UK cigar scene will once again rise to the occasion and set a new standard for what can be achieved in challenging circumstances.
