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.”
