In November, the Por Larrañaga Larrañaga 47, the latest UK Habanos Regional Edition, made its debut at 47 events simultaneously held across the UK. These events were hosted by prominent members of the UK retail network, featuring a strong presence of La Casa del Habanos franchise and Habanos Specialists.

The synchronized launch events kicked off precisely at 6:30 pm, spanning various venues throughout the United Kingdom, including England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.

The evening commenced with a brief video from Jemma Freeman (Executive Chairman of Hunters & Frankau, the UK’s Habanos distributor) and José Antonio Cejas Diaz (Hunters & Frankau Corporate Director), introducing the Larrañaga 47 and inviting attendees to enjoy their cherished Habanos.

The Larrañaga 47, with its factory name Julieta No.2 and often referred to as the “Churchill” size, holds historical significance.

In the early 1950s, Romeo y Julieta crafted a cigar of this size named “The Churchill” in tribute to Sir Winston Churchill. This size became the foundation for the creation and expansion of the Churchill series within the global brand. The classic size is a favourite in the UK market, perfectly showcasing the brand’s delicate blend.

Setting it apart from other UK Regional Editions, the Larrañaga 47 is presented in Semi Boîte Nature (SBN) boxes containing 50 cigars. As a nod to the brand’s heritage, an old papeleta from the brand has been recreated to adorn the exterior of the box.

Limited to 1,500 boxes, totalling 75,000 Habanos, this exclusive edition is available only in the UK.

All Por Larrañaga Habanos are meticulously handcrafted, using long-filler and leaves harvested from the renowned Vuelta Abajo region of Cuba.
