Hiram & Solomon Cigars has announced that it will be increasing prices in 2022, informing its retailers of a 7 percent across-the-board increase.

“We are not happy with it but we are forced to do it,” said Fouad Kashouty of Hiram & Solomon, who attributed the need for an increase to increasing raw materials costs and shipping rates. “Shipping costs are higher than ever before,” he said, adding that he was confident that retailers and consumers would understand the need for the increase.

“We promise them that we will continue to provide the best quality cigars,” he added.

The increase will go into effect on orders received after Jan. 1.

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.
