IPCPR 2018: Ted’s


Ted’s Cigars, best known for its bourbon infused cigar, didn’t bring any new products to the trade show, instead introducing two new sampler SKUs. I actually ended up talking to company founder Ted Jackson more about his other business—which sells politically-themed merchandise—more than his cigar one. For those wondering about the Make America Great Again hat, Ted’s sells a 45 Cigar with the Make America Great Again slogan on it, although oddly not in red.

As for the booth, it’s the same as it’s been for a few years now. I do feel like the location was much better as typically I recall the company being towards the back of the show floor, whereas this year the company was much closer to the front.


Ted’s Seasoned Sampler

This take’s a variety of the company’s flavored cigars—The Glen (Scotch-infused), Rhum (rum-infused), Forty Creek (Canadian Whiskey-infused), Grand Marnier and cigarro agave (Tequila-infused) into a 5 x 5 sampler for retailers.


Ted’s Select Sampler

In similar fashion, The Ted’s Select sampler gives retailers three of the brand’s non-infused lines all in single-serve packaging.
