As we step into the promising horizon of 2024, we at Marco V Cigars are thrilled to reflect on the success we achieved in 2023. It was a year where we proudly marked our 14th consecutive year of growth, a testament to our unwavering commitment to excellence and dedication to our craft.
When we launced Marco V Cigars in 2009, we started with 3 blends and one size. Since then we built out our Classico collection, launched the Privato Jalapa Reserve Collection (a premium collection from our Nicaraguan factory), and then launched the Mont Blanc Premium House Blends. Our goal was to make the Mont Blancs the best value in the cigar industry. It worked as the Mont Blancs have one of the strongest followings and biggest fanbase.
Marco V has achieved a couple notable accomplishments thus far in 2023. After 14 years in business we just hit record sales in our distribution channel as well as our online store. From the very beginning, we set out to create a brand that would not only captivate cigar aficionados but also redefine the industry itself. With unwavering dedication to quality and complete control of the supply chain, we have seen our vision come to life, resonating with customers far and wide.
Château St. Croix has been the sole proprietor for the Marco V Red & Dessert Wine for a long time. Now it's time to pair those wines and more with Marco V Cigars! Join us on June 10th for the 1pm session or the 4pm session and enjoy 4 cigars and 4 wines with educational commentary and insight from the Marco V team and Chateau St. Croix's Winemaker.
One of the reasons why I started Marco V Cigars was because of the role the cigar plays in celebrations. We talk about it here where the origins of Marco V come from Victor Vito lighting up a cigar to commemorate his passage into the United States. They mark a right of passage in many avenues in life and were/are a staple at all of our family gatherings where memories are made. This is Marco V at the core.
There is something truly special about smoking a cigar. For many, it is an experience that is truly unique, and one that is enjoyed by people all over the world. From the scent of the tobacco to the ritual of lighting up, there is something about smoking a cigar that is both calming and invigorating. But smoking a cigar is not just about lighting up and puffing away. There is a real art to it, and if you want to get the most out of your cigar, there are a few things you need to know.
It's bonfire season!
One of our favorite things to do in the Fall is to sit outside on a cool evening and enjoy a cigar around the bonfire with friends and family.
It's even better in our custom bonfire ring.
There is something about the crisp, clean air with the bonfire roaring that enhances the cigar smoking experience.
November is always ...
The Marco V Black Sapphire uses the best tobacco in the world from a small, hidden farm in Jalapa, Nicaragua. The tobacco for the Black Sapphire is hand-selected in the curing barn by our master blender to ensure the absolute best quality smoke and flavor like no other. The Black Sapphire is a full-bodied, flat, rectangular pressed, torpedo.
This month we are featuring our Marco V La Canela Lancero. This cigar is my go to cigar in the morning with a cup of coffee but also a fantastic cigar if you want to taste the sweetness of our our shade grown wrapper. You can read more about the La Canela below and look for our Monthly Newsletter with a coupon code.
Summer is in full swing and we have had some really unique and exciting events since we last connected.
We made a stop out to the Chateau St. Croix Winery and did an event that featured our cigars and our wine. If you haven't heard about our award winning wine or port, definitely check it out here.
