After more than a decade on the market, Ted’s Cigars will no longer be selling its licensed Grand Marnier cigar.

“This line has been a top seller and a favorite for many years, unfortunately the company was sold a while back and as part of this transition the license is not being renewed,” wrote Ted’s in an email to its retailers. In 2016, Gruppo Campari agreed to purchase a stake in Société des Produits Marnier Lapostolle, the parent company of Grand Marnier, with the intent of acquiring majority ownership.

Ted’s offered the Grand Marnier cigar in Petit Corona (5 x 38) and Torpedo (6 x 52) sizes. The cigars used a corojo wrapper over an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic. They were rolled in the Dominican Republic and infused with Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge and ultimately packed inside of a glass tube that meant they did not need to be humidified.

While the licensed Grand Marnier cigar is going away, Ted’s plans on introducing a non-licensed version of the cigar later this year.

Ted’s sells a number of different cigars that are infused with liquors including bourbon, whisky, tequila, rum as well as a cigar infused with hops to replicate the taste of an IPA.
