SARASOTA, Fla. — Frontier Brands is expanding its Frontier Cigar line with the addition of Frontier Cigarillos and Frontier XLs.
The new offerings are made in the Dominican Republic with Frontier’s flagship product Frontier Cheroots.
The cigarillos are handmade, all-natural tobacco cigars made with premium tobaccos from Nicaragua and Dominican Republic. They are wrapped in an Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade leaf and come in six flavors: Honey, Honey Berry, Rum, Russian Cream, Sweet Aromatic and Whiskey. Each cigar is individually wrapped and comes in retail tins of 10 cigars, which have a suggested retail price (SRP) of $17.99.
The Frontier XL is an all-natural corona sized cigar, also made with Nicaragua and Dominican tobacco fillers and wrapped in Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrappers. It comes in Russian Cream and Sweet Aromatic and is packaged in stay-fresh pouches of three cigars. The SRP is $4.99 per pouch.
“I believe by offering the finest leaf and highest quality tobaccos along with our excellent price points and aggressive promotions have been the keys to distinguishing our products in the marketplace,” said Ryan Frailing, COO of Frontier. “Our Frontier Cigars use no [homogenized tobacco leaf] or other manmade wrappers or fillers. Additionally, with the growth of cigars in the convenience store segment it allowed us to advance our product offerings by about two years.”
Frontier Brands LLC is a wholly owned subsidiary of Island Lifestyle Importers LLC, Sarasota, Fla. Island Lifestyle Importers is the manufacturer of the Island Lifestyle, Island Club and Royal Leafe premium cigar brands, and is the exclusive manufacturer of Tommy Bahama Luxury Cigar Accessories. Frontier’s focus is to bring the same high-quality standards to the traditional mass cigar market at affordable price points, the company said.
