Bolivar and Santa Damiana honoured by European Cigar Cult Journal
European Cigar Cult Journal, one of Europes most respected publications on both Cuban and Non-Cuban cigars, recently recognised the Santa Damiana and Bolivar brands at their recent annual awards ceremony in Dortmund, Germany.
The Inter-Tabac trade fair in Dortmund was the location for the ceremony, and to be awarded with an European Cigar Cult Journal trophy is one of the cigar industries highest honours.
Santa Damiana, originally a Cuban brand but now handcrafted at the Tabacalera de Garcia in the Dominican Republic won the 2009 trophy for ‘Best Value from the Dominican Republic’.
Bolivar, which was created in 1902 and is now based in the Partagas factory in the heart of Havana, won the award for ‘Best Cuban Brand for 2009’.
