Riste Ristevski is getting his own event.

The Jas Sum Kral owner will host two events next month, part of a weekend dubbed “Ristefari 2017.”

Jas Sum Kral Red Knight Soloman

During the two Chicago-area events, customers will have a chance to purchase the Jas Sum Kral Red Knight Soloman, a special 7 x 58 version of the company’s first line. It uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper, Mexican San Andrés and Nicaraguan Jalapa binders and undisclosed fillers.

The first event is March 10 at 1101 Cigars in Schererville, Ind. and the second event is at Casa de Montecristo of Countryside, Ill. on March 11.

Only 100 boxes of 10 cigars have been made, priced at $12 per cigar.



Two beers have been brewed for the event by: Lazabrewski Brew House: Buc’off IPA and a Coffee Porter.
