House of Emilio Announces Official Online Cigar Store-Press Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Gary Griffith of Delaware Cigars and House of Emilio, announces an official online cigar store for the House of Emilio brands.

Cigar Federation already serves as the online store for our 27 Delaware Cigars retail locations. If we were going to have an “officially endorsed” online home for these special brands, this was the place.” noted Griffith.

House of Emilio

currently distributes 9 boutique brands: Ezra Zion, Rodrigo Cigars, Nomad Cigars, 1502 Cigars, Guayacan, Epicurean Cigars, Herederos de Robaina, Bodega Cigars, and Griffith’s own Emilio Cigars.

Cigar Federation is owned by Kyle Hoover and Chris Kelly of Ezra Zion Cigar Company. The site is managed by Logan Lawler and Rob Rasmussen.

“Being in the House of Emilio family as one of the distributed brands, we are honored to serve our brothers and represent their cigars well.” said Kelly.

“The notoriety around these cigars has caused a groundswell of demand around the country. We are inundated everyday with calls, emails and Twitter DMs from folks who want to get their hands on them but may not have a retailer that has them within a 5 state radius.” noted Hoover.

“I don’t want any of our brick and mortar retailers to worry about competition. I’m a B&M retailer just like them. These cigars are price protected just like they were sitting on a shelf in any of my 27 retail locations. Our goal is to make these available to those who don’t have shop close by that carries them just yet.” added Griffith.

To purchase all the House of Emilio cigars online, please visit the Cigar Federation Store.

Cologne Inspired by The Glenlivet Whiskey

Glenlivet cologne

A new fragrance out this year makes it seem as though marketers think men enjoy smelling like they’ve been drinking as much as they enjoy actually drinking.

D.S. & Durga are a Brooklyn based perfume house, they make perfume and cologne in small batches using premium raw materials. All of their scents are created exclusively in-house. Each scent tells a story.

Hylnds Spirit of The Glen, is inspired by The Glenlivet whisky.

The booziness is fairly fleeting, leaving you in a comfortable shroud of familiar, yet appropriately vague smells.

Hylnds Spirit of the Glen eau de parfum    $180 for 1.7 oz
