The Lotus Group/Integral Logistics has added a pair of new accessories to its spring releases, a branded ashtray and a value-priced punch cutter.

The company’s flagship brand is getting a branded melamine ashtray with four cigar rests. The material is not only lightweight and impact-resistant, it is also dishwasher safe for easy cleaning. It measures 9 1/4 inches square and 1 1/2 inches deep and comes with an MSRP of $19.95.

If your keyring is missing a punch cutter, the Vertigo Torpedo can fix that for under three bucks. The 8mm metal punch pushes out from the body and locks into position, while a push button action returns the cutter to inside the plastic body and self-cleans any tobacco remnants. It comes with an MSRP of $2.99.

Both items have begun shipping to retailers, as well as four new lighters that the company has added to its Vertigo brand.

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, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
