Drew Estate Celebrates 20 Years of ACID with ACID 20


It’s the 20th anniversary of ACID, the cigar that arguably put Drew Estate on the map, and they are celebrating it with the release of the ACID 20.


“The ACID cigar brand was born under the Manhattan bridge, on the Brooklyn side of course, with a raw and honest vision of boundless freedom,” said Jonathan Drew, president and founder of Drew Estate, via a press release. “Urban culture and massive style supercharged the ACID brand, shaking the foundation of the traditional cigar empires across the globe. ACID’s impact was much more than just disruptive, as it essentially cracked the mainframe of the sleepy status quo. Over twenty years, we transformed from a scrappy little crew on Jay Street, Brooklyn to an organized, viral network of distinguished Diplomats rocking every street in America. ACID is everywhere, like savoir faire, percolating and reconnoitering.”

ACID 20 sports a Mexican San Andrés wrapper, Indonesian binder and filler leaves from Nicaragua. The company says that it is finished with an infusion that is “truly unique, and worthy of the double decade title.” It comes in a 5 x 52 box pressed robusto vitola.

The cigar comes packaged in chrome boxes of 24 that have an MSRP of $230.40, or $11.52 per individual stick. The company says they will begin shipping in September.

“I have had the pleasure of working for Drew Estate for 19 years and watching consumers fall in love with ACID one cigar at a time,” added Fabien Ziegler, director of consumer engagement. “With the release of ACID 20, I have to say this is by far our greatest creation. The experiential impact of this cigar is without equal.”

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
