The premium cigars brands of Nat Sherman International have been through a great deal of change in recent years. Fans of the premium cigar blends from Nat Sherman were especially sad to see Altria shut it down in late 2020, along with the Nat Sherman Townhouse in Manhattan. Today, Michael Herklots and Brendon Scott announced the launch of Ferio Tego, LLC. The new company acquired the brands from Altria including Epoca, Timeless, Metropolitan, and more.
Ferio Tego will start with a cigar line of the same name, set to launch in the Spring of 2021. Soon after, the brands like Timeless, Epoca, and Host will be reintroduced to the market under the Ferio Tego brand. The factory partnerships for production are likely to remain the same as when Altria owned the brands, but the details are still being worked out. During their time at Altria Herklots served as the Vice President of Nat Sherman International, while Scott was the Chief Financial Officer.
