Crux Cigars has announced the launch of Union Fire, a new line of premium cigars that will exclusively be available through Famous Smoke Shop. The name ‘Union Fire’ pays tribute the Union Fire Company, a volunteer fire department in Philadelphia that was formed in 1736 with the help of Benjamin Franklin. Known as the ‘Bucket Brigade’, it was the very first fire company in the colonies.
Back when wooden structures were more susceptible to fire, this volunteer company came to save many structures. With leather buckets, some hooks, and a few ladders, the success they had resulted in the formation of many other fire companies, with immediate results.
“When we partnered with Famous to create this blend, we wanted to link it to the history of Pennsylvania in some manner. After some research, we decided the history of the Union Fire Company was a perfect match for a new cigar line. The cigar itself is a rich and smokey blend of Nicaragua tobacco,” said Crux Cigars President Jeff Haugen.
The Union Fire will be available in the following sizes:
Robusto – 4.875 x 50, MSRP $6.99
Toro – 6 x 52, MSRP $7.80
Churchill – 7 x 50, MSRP $8.30
Each size presented in 10-count Boxes
