Unleash your inner Winston Churchill at the Robusto House Cigar Lounge, during this year’s CLA Game Fair, to be held at Harewood House near Leeds in Yorkshire from Friday 31 July until Sunday 2 August.
Founded in 2007 by Simon Selkin, Robusto House sells a wide range of authentic, hand rolled Cuban cigars at prestige events, as well as at private and corporate parties. All of its cigars are supplied via Hunter & Frankau, the UK’s exclusive importer of Cuban cigars since 1790.
The Robusto House stand, situated on Gunmakers’ Row, will showcase a range of 80 cigar brands, the majority of which are sourced from Cuba, in climate-controlled humidors. It will also offer cigars from lesser-known ‘new world’ cigar producers such as the Dominican Republic, Honduras and Nicaragua, many of which are made using tobacco from the United States.
The new, open-air Robusto House Cigar Lounge, situated behind the stand, will enable CLA Game Fair visitors over the age of 18 to sample the cigar of their choice in comfortable surroundings away from the buzz of the show. To enter the lounge all visitors need to do is sign up for the free-to-join Robusto Club and they can then relax, learn about the history of cigars, discover how Cuban cigars are made using just five tobacco leaves, and find out more about different brands.
Robusto House’s famous Cigar Sommeliers will also be on hand to advise visitors on the best cigar for their taste, whether it be a world-famous Montecristo, a strong Partegas loved by experienced cigar smokers, or a light and gentle Hoyo de Monterey. Also on show will be the company’s renowned 1950s Cigar Pram, which displays a range of cigars in its illuminated interior and adds an element of theatre to any event.
Simon Selkin, owner of Robusto House, commented: “We have seen an upsurge in interest in cigars, hence the idea of the Cigar Lounge which will appeal to cigar aficionados who know what they like, to those who have tried one or two before and want to find out more, and to visitors who are completely new to cigar smoking. Our motto of ‘the right time, the right cigar’ means we can find the perfect brand for anyone wanting to sample the pleasure of smoking natural, hand rolled cigars so do stop to try one for yourself!”
