In the first of a projected five to six announcements from Southern Draw Cigars, leading up to this year’s IPCPR trade show, the company has revealed today a duo of cigars known as ‘Fraternal Order.’

Fraternal Order features two unique blends (Fraternal Order White & Fraternal Order Black) produced in collaboration with Cigars International. These cigars will be sold exclusively through CI retail locations across the country and were said to be blind-trial-tested by CI retail staff and managers to help select the final blends/sizes.

Cigars International is a great partner for Southern Draw Cigars and these retail exclusive releases exemplify their dedication to our growing partnership with their retail stores, hard-working staff and loyal consumers. Private label products are becoming increasingly popular among cigar smokers and allow Southern Draw Cigars to fulfill the high-demand retail consumers “needs and wants” for new and innovative products outside of our regularly scheduled releases. We offer a BIG thanks to the retail staff and managers for the months of blind tasting and their feedback that led to selecting the two blends we are offering today.Robert Holt, founder of Southern Draw Cigars
