Collection Number Two
The second Hunters & Frankau House Reserve Series 1790 Humidor is now available in limited quantities and exclusively in the UK. The Series 1790 is the jewel in the crown of Hunters & Frankau’s House Reserve and consists of themed collections curated from some of the rarest and most sought-after Havana cigars within their House Reserve. The first Collection, from 2019, offered ten of every UK Habanos Regional Editions up to and including the 2017 release. This time inspiration has been drawn for the Collection Number Two from of our long-standing shared history with the Ramón Allones brand. A relationship dating back to at least 1911.
Just fifty numbered pieces have been commissioned from Italian humidor makers, DeART S.r.l. Each one contains sixty-one Ramón Allones cigars, made in Havana under the authority of Habanos S.A. and every Ramón Allones Limited Edition and UK Regional Edition is included. This provides seven different cigars spanning a period of sixteen years. They are classified as special productions either due to the ageing of the tobacco used in their manufacturing or because they have been produced exclusively for the UK market. For the first time, we are presenting the as yet unreleased Ramón Allones Private Stock 230, a cigar created to commemorate Hunters & Frankau’s 230th Anniversary in 2020.
We hope you enjoy this special collection of cigars.
Hunters & Frankau House Reserve
Every year since the end of the last century, we have put aside a few boxes of particularly noteworthy Havana cigars. Some succumbed to market demands, but others have remained in our warehouse where they have been allowed to age in perfect conditions of temperature and humidity. Today they comprise an exceptional collection known as Hunters & Frankau’s House Reserve.
Starting in 2019, small quantities of these precious cigars have been released for sale in Britain. They are presented either in their original boxes under the banner of Aged & Rare, or in specially commissioned humidors or boxes as part of the House Reserve Series 1790.
All share two aspects of provenance: first, they were made totally by hand in Cuba under the auspices of Habanos S.A. and second, they have been released from Hunters & Frankau’s House Reserve where they have resided ever since they first arrived in Britain. In 2022 we introduced a foot band to identify each cigar as part of Hunters & Frankau House Reserve Series 1790 Collection humidor.
