Delray Beach, FL – Freud Cigar Co., the new-to-market luxury cigar house built by a group of the industry’s leading executives and master blenders, today announces that longtime industry veteran Eladio Diaz is serving as Master Blender of its second cigar. Formerly Head of Production and Quality Control for Davidoff of Geneva, Diaz is producing “Freud Cigars Agape Limited Edition,” at his recently-opened factory, Tabacalera Diaz Cabrera. It will be Diaz’s first cigar following his departure from Davidoff of Geneva and the first cigar produced by his new workshop to hit the market.
Taking inspiration from Dr. Sigmund Freud, one of the most prominent cigar enthusiasts and public intellectuals in world history, Freud Cigar Co. founders David Stadnyk and Luis Torres conceived of Freud Cigar Co. from a shared passion for premium tobacco and elevated experiences. The result is expert-crafted, innovative, small-batch blends. A nod to the name of the brand’s parent company, Agape Lifestyle Inc., which in Greek means the highest form of love, Freud Cigars’ “Agape Limited Edition” by Diaz is a Dominican Puro, and will be released with a production count of 35,000 cigars. The brand will begin taking orders at the Premium Cigar Association trade show in Las Vegas this summer, and will distribute the cigars nationally via Illusione Cigars shortly after.
The summer launch of Diaz’s “Agape Limited Edition” will follow the brand’s debut release of “Super Ego,” produced by blending prodigy Wiber Ventura. Inspired by one of the three agents in Freud’s model for psychoanalytic theory, “Super Ego” is crafted at the Dominican Republic’s industry-leading Tabacalera
William Ventura and features a blend that is a combination of Dominican and Nicaraguan filler, with a Sumatran binder and Ecuadorian wrapper. All tobacco has been aged for at least 3 and a half years or more.
SuperEgo is available in four sizes: Toro (6 x 52), Robusto Extra (5 x 54), Lonsdale (6.5 x 42) and Magnum (6 x 60). Cigars will be available for purchase nationally this month, and will also be distributed by Illusione Cigars out of Reno, Nevada, under the direction of Founder and industry icon Dion Giolito. Consumers can also pre-order “Super Ego” online at https://www.cigarsdirect.com/collections/freud?display=list.
“When we decided to launch this brand, Eladio was one of my first phone calls,” says Luis Torres, Co-Founder, Freud Cigar Co. He notes that “We have been friends for years, and it has been a dream of mine to have the opportunity to work with him. We could not be more thrilled to have him produce our first Limited Edition cigar.”
Under the umbrella of Agape Lifestyle Inc., Freud Cigar Co. has a strategic growth model with sales projections and product innovation into 2024 that will establish its status well beyond entry to the category and position it for sustained growth over the next 24 months.
