L’Atelier Identité Begins Shipping Nationally


L’Atelier Imports has begun shipping Identité.

As the name implies, the French word for identity, the cigars tied to the brand’s identity, Sancti Spiritus, a specific type of tobacco that has been used across almost the entire L’Atelier portfolio.


Sancti Spiritus is a hybrid criollo and pelo de oro seed that is grown by the García family, the same family that owns the My Father brand and factory, in Nicaragua. The Nicaraguan Sancti Spiritus is used for fillers, while the seed is grown in Ecuador for wrapper.

It should come as no surprise that Sancti Spiritus can be found in all three parts of the Identité. An Ecuadorian variant is used for the wrapper while the binder and fillers are from Nicaragua.

Three sizes are offered:

  • L’Atelier Identité No. 1 (4 7/8 x 50) — $9 (Boxes of 20, $180)
  • L’Atelier Identité No. 2 (5 5/8 x 46) — $9 (Boxes of 20, $180)
  • L’Atelier Identité No. 3 (5 7/8 x 52) — $10 (Boxes of 20, $200)

Like the rest of L’Atelier Imports, the cigar is being produced at My Father Cigars S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua.
