Two very familiar brands will soon be appearing on cigar accessories from The Lotus Group/Integral Logistics, as today the company has announced that it has entered into a partnership with Lifestyle Brands, LLC to bring the Margaritaville and LandShark brands to cigar cutters, lighters, ashtrays and cases, with the items bearing iconic imagery and lyrics from singer, songwriter and best-selling author Jimmy Buffett.

“Our team is honored and excited to partner with Lifestyle Brands, LLC to create products for a laid-back lifestyle,” said Rosemary Sharp, president of Lotus Group, in a press release. Sharp told halfwheel that the collection received a soft launch at the recent Tobacconists’ Association of America trade show, where she said it was very well received by the retail members. While the collection is currently in stock and available for shipping, it will get a bigger launch at the upcoming IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, complete with a tiki bar-themed corner of the company’s booth.

While neither the Lotus or Vertigo marks will appear on the accessories, many of the collection’s debut offerings draw on the company’s most popular and best performing accessories.

The complete collection can be seen below and is currently available to order via The Lotus Group/Integral Logistics.

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 previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
