There will be another Fratello available only near the company’s headquarters in Northern Virginia, though this time there will be four different cigars and they will be offered to all retailers in the area.
Known as the Fratello D.M.V, a reference to the Washington D.C. area including areas of Maryland and Virginia, the cigars are being made at La Aurora. The blend uses an Ecuadorian HVA wrapper over an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and the U.S.
While the DMV acronym references a distinct area in two states and the District of Columbia, the cigars will be offered to retailers throughout each state, as well as Delaware. The cigars are also named after the three states and District.
- Fratello D.M.V District of Columbia (6 1/4 x 54) — $9
- Fratello D.M.V Maryland (6 x 58) — $9.25
- Fratello D.M.V Virginia (5 1/2 x 52) — $8.75
- Fratello D.M.V Delaware (5 x 50) — $8.50
“The first retailer to carry my cigars was in Maryland, my launch event was in DC and Virginia is home to my business,” said Omar de Frias. “This blend is my tribute to the DMV and to the retailers that helped put Fratello in the map.”
