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.
One of the most well known brands in the Premium Cigar business will cease operations entirely in September of 2020. Nat Sherman International, a brand of premium cigars that has been well known for over 90 years, and the iconic Nat Sherman Townhouse in Manhattan will permanently cease operations. The Nat Sherman brand was purchased by Altria in 2017.
