Lotus’ LandShark Collection Adding Four Lighters at TPE 2020


The Lotus Group will have four new LandShark lighters on display in its booth at the Tobacco Plus Expo (TPE) 2020 trade show, which will debut alongside several new accessories for the company’s Margaritaville line.


The LandShark Beachcomber is a dual flame, single action ignition lighter that is housed in an all-metal body, with a carabiner attachment and included carabiner that allows it to be attached to a bag or other item. The company guarantees that the lighter will work at elevations up to 11,000 feet. The lighter measures 3.125 x 1.375 x .5 inches and is available in three colors: black, blue and yellow, each with an MSRP of $14.99.

Also new in the lighter category is the Driftwood, a single flame, single action side squeeze lighter. It comes in a metal housing, with the lighter measuring 2.125 x 1.375 x .625 inches. As for features, it offers a large flame adjustment wheel on the bottom, as well as a fuel window designed to look like a beer bottle that is included on both sides. The company says that it will work at elevations up to 5,000 feet. The Driftwood is available in three color options, each priced at $14.99.

The Seahawk is a single torch lighter that is housed in a metal body with a flip up lid bearing the phrase “Fins Up!” The lighter measures 2.75 x 1.375 x .5 inches and is available in two finishes, each of which comes with a fuel window designed to look like a shark fin and is priced at $14.99.

Finally, for those looking for a more powerful single torch with a very distinctive body design, the company is releasing the Megalodon, a single action ignition that uses a shark fin design. It measures 3 x 1.25 x .625 inches and comes in a freestanding, all metal housing with a large flame adjustment wheel, while the company says that it will work at elevations up to 5,000 feet. It is available in two color options, both priced at $14.99.

The Lotus Group acquired the rights to make cigar accessories for the Margaritaville and LandShark brands in June 2018 as part of a partnership with Lifestyle Brands, LLC that brings the iconic imagery and lyrics from singer, songwriter and best-selling author Jimmy Buffett to lighters, cutters, ashtrays, cigar cases and other accessories.

All of the new products are set to begin shipping immediately following the the Tobacco Plus Expo 2020 trade show, which happens Jan. 29-31 in Las Vegas, Nev.

About the author

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