Drew Estate and Crowned Heads Collaborate On “La Coalicion”
Today Drew Estate and Crowned Heads announce their partnership in the release of “La Coalicion”, manufactured by La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate and sold through Crowned Heads. “La Coalicion” will be displayed in the Crowned Heads Booth at the IPCPR Convention and Tradeshow, held June 29-July 2, 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“La Coalicion” is a spectacular collaboration brand for the premium cigar fanatic. The brand is wrapped in rich, dark Connecticut Broadleaf, with a spicy Sumatran binder and aged fillers from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. “La Coalicion” is available in 4 sizes: Corona Gorda (5” x 46), Gordito (5 1/2” x 50), Siglo (6” x 52) and Sublime (6 1/2” x 54). Each vitola brings a very specific and unique nuance and complexity, carefully blended by Willy Herrera and Jon Huber.
From Little Havana in Miami, Willy Herrera Master Blender at Drew Estate highlights, “Huber and I have always had a similar palate for what notes we are looking for in our blends. Working together, we knew from the beginning we wanted to utilize the dense, oily Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper which is the inspiration for this killer smoke. La Coalicion is a passion product that Huber and I are really proud of.”
From Crowned Heads HQ in Nashville, Jon Huber adds, “I’ve personally wanted to work with Willy for years now, as I feel that our aesthetic towards cigars are similar and we also share a common respect and passion towards the tradition of premium cigars. Further, being able to tap into the creative juggernaut that is Drew Estate has been an amazing experience. I’ve long respected what the DE brand has achieved, and I believe their personal brand extends far beyond just ‘cigars;’ they’re truly an innovator, disruptor, and a game changer within our industry.”
From the Wynwood Safehouse, Jonathan Drew President and Founder of Drew Estate notes, “I am proud to report that Drew Estate always remains “Boutique in the Heart” in everything we create. This collaboration with Crowned Heads has been gratifying, mostly because of their passion and intensity. Plus, their hat game is on point!”
