U.S. entrepreneur Joe Baker and the Florida-based company Palomino Cigars and Imports have together launched the House of Burgess Cigars Ltd.
Silvio Palomino is a longtime importer and distributor of premium Dominican cigars and owner of Palomino Imports. He has been providing private-brand cigars to brand owners across the U.S. since 1990.
Baker, of Cleveland, Ohio, who is a former publisher of Cigars In Review magazine, said that the new business’ importing and distribution arm would be based in West Palm Beach, Florida, while the company headquarters would be in Cleveland.
The partnership includes among its offering several brands already in existence: La Renia, Santa Ana, Palomino and Boca del Monte.
And for the Christmas season, it will be releasing the flagship cigar line that will feature the House of Burgess name and logo.
The new brand will be available with Connecticut, maduro and Corojo wrappers. And it will be launched in double robusto, toro and torpedo shapes, with other sizes to be released early next year.
