Agio Cigars introduces Balmoral Private Collection in Korea Duty Free, Hans Rijfkogel reports a successful launch

Published on August 2, 2016

Dutch cigar producer Royal Agio Cigars has reported a successful launch of Balmoral Private Collection cigars in Korea Duty Free. Speaking in Taipei just before the summer holidays, Hans Rijfkogel, Director at Asia Marketing Services said, “A few years ago Royal Agio Cigars launched Balmoral Collection 12’s in Asia and this product has very quickly become one of Agio Cigars bestsellers in Asia Duty Free. We are now launching the exclusive Balmoral Private Collection with 25 cigars in elegant piano lacquer wooden boxes within Asia Duty Free at Seoul Incheon International Airport.”

When asked why the new Balmoral Private Collection gift box is doing so well, Hans Rijfkogel replied, “First of all, let me give you a little background on this product. The Balmoral cigars are made in Agio Cigars factory in San Pedro de Macoris, a small city in the Dominican Republic located in the southeastern part of the country. These shortfiller cigars are made with a premium blend of tobaccos from South America and the Caribbean and a natural shade-grown wrapper from Ecuador (a small country located in northwestern South America).”

“Growing the wrappers from Ecuador in a natural shade ensures that the Balmoral cigars have a mild and rich flavor. It also guarantees the beautiful golden color of the wrapper. Our master blender personally selects these tobaccos, which provide the perfect body and balance to the cigars”.

“The main reason that Balmoral Private Collection is doing so well is that it is an exclusive product for the right price. In Asian Duty Free shops you will find the new Balmoral Private Collection with 25 cigars for US$ 130 per wooden box. A luxury most cigar aficionados can afford.”
