If you’ve ever been to the Nat Sherman Townhouse in Manhattan and used the square pewter ashtrays, you’ll be familiar with the company’s newest accessory line.
At this year’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, Nat Sherman will show off its Executive Ashtrays, which feature the same grid design, measuring 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches. The ashtrays feature a criss-cross pattern drilled out to a low multiple cigars to rest at once and 16 holes that allow for ash to fall into removable tray.
The Nat Sherman Executive Ashtray will retail for $159.95 and is offered in burl, Macassar, mahogany, maple, red and white finishes.
In addition, the company is introducing a matching line of humidors. The Nat Sherman Executive Humidor measure 10 x 15 x 6 inches with an interior of 8 1/2 x 13 1/2 x inches.
Rather than using Spanish cedar, the company is using okoumé wood and lining the interior with lucite. The idea is to create a low maintenance solution, so forgoing Spanish cedar, which absorbs moisture, should allow for much quicker and more stable humidity levels when used with an active humidification system. The top portion features a removable cover that works well with Bovedas.
The other advantage to lucite is that it lacks aroma, which the company says will better preserve the true intentions of a cigar blend.
All six of the Executive Humidor will retail for $449.95.
“The Annual IPCPR is the preeminent event in the American premium tobacco market and we can’t think of a better venue to celebrate our 85th Anniversary and introduce several new product offerings,” said Michael Herklots, vp of retail and brand development for Nat Sherman, in a press release.
“This is a truly exciting year for Nat Sherman. Reflecting on 85 years as a family owned and operated business; it’s an honor to acknowledge and celebrate the reputation for excellence and innovation that the Company has garnered since opening its doors in 1930. While we continue to celebrate our storied past, we are excited about our future and exceeding the demands of brand loyalists and new customers alike.”
