REGIONAL EDITIONS

Since 2005 the companies that distribute Havanas in different territories around the world have been invited by Habanos S.A. to bid for the chance to develop their own special sizes in the less well known  Havana brands, to be made in limited quantities for sale only in their own markets. These cigars are known as Regional Editions.

WHAT CONSTITUTES A REGIONAL EDITION?

  • Limited production of a standard Havana vitola (size) that is new to a particular brand.
  • ‡Can only be requested in a less well known Havana brand.
  • ‡Can only be sold in the distributor’s market.
  • ‡Presented in numbered boxes (from 2006).

In 2005 Hunters & Frankau, the UK’s Havana distributor, helped to pioneer the project with the Ramon Allones Belicosos Fino. However the Regional Edition concept has since been refined by the addition of numbers on all the boxes and a second band to identify the region for which the cigar has
been made.

In 2007 H&F was granted  the Por Larrañaga Magnifico for which a special century-old cigar band was re-created.

Two cigars were awarded in 2008. One was the Gloria Cubana Glorioso for which not only a special vintage band was re-created, but also an antique box label to be placed inside the lid. The other was the Punch Serie D’Oro No.1 or Gold Series No.1, which came in a style of box that had not been seen for over forty years.

2009 again saw H&F granted two Regional Editions: the El Rey del Mundo Choix de L’Epoque and the Juan Lopez Selección Suprema for which a special band was printed. Another two were secured in 2010: the Por Larrañaga Regalías de Londres, also dressed in a special band, and the Flor de Cano Short Robusto, the first long-filler, hand-made cigar to be made in this brand for two decades.

The Bolivar Britanicas in a box decorated with a reproduction of an old label and the Punch Medalla de Oro with each cigar part-wrapped in gold foil were produced for the UK in 2011, although both cigars were released during the following year.

All releases since 2011 have carried on the second band the words “Exclusivo Gran Bretaña” (Great Britain) instead of “Exclusivo Reino Unido” (United  Kingdom) to identify the region for which the cigar has been made.

From 2012 onwards, only one Regional Edition has been permitted for each market.  The Ramon Allones Petit Belicoso, a shorter version of Hunters & Frankau’s first Regional Edition, was picked that year. And in 2013, another long-filler, hand-made Flor de Cano has been made under the name Gran Cano, which is dressed in a band inscribed with its name and in a box bearing a reproduction of an old label on it. The Por Larrañaga Sobresalientes is the 2014 UK Regional Edition.This cigar represents the third time that Hunters & Frankau have selected Por Larrañaga to produce their Regional Editions, but the first time that the Sobresaliente vitola has been presented in the Por Larrañaga brand. The Bolivar Belgravia is the 2015 UK Regional Edition. This is the second time that Bolivar has been selected to produce a UK Regional Edition, following on from the 2011 release of the Bolivar Británicas Extra.

The 2016 UK Habanos Regional Edition, the Juan Lopez Selección Superba, was launched by Hunters & Frankau at The Churchill Bar & Terrace on Tuesday 8th November.This is the second time that Juan Lopez has been chosen to produce a Regional Edition for the UK, following the 2009 Selección Suprema.
