Alec & Bradley Rubin released the Blind Faith at the 2018 IPCPR trade show, their first release as an offshoot of the Alec Bradley brand. Today, they have announced that they will be expanding the distribution of this cigar, starting at Tobacco Plus Expo (TPE) in Las Vegas, NV- January 29-31.
Alec & Bradley started planning their own brand in 2017 with the help of their father Alan Rubin. At launch, they were only using three pairs of rollers at Raices Cubanas factory in Danli, Honduras. The blend uses a proprietary wrapper from Alec Bradley’s farm in Trojes, Honduras, double binder from Honduras and Nicaragua, and three fillers from Esteli. Blind Faith comes in boxes of 20 in three sizes: Robusto 5″ X 52 (MSRP: $8.95), Toro 6″ X 52 (MSRP: $10.00) and Gordo 6″ X 60 (MSRP: $10.95).
“Alec & Bradley Cigars has grown leaps and bounds since our first introduction,” said Bradley Rubin. “Since the early success of Blind Faith, we had the opportunity to team up with the legendary Ernie Perez-Carrillo for our second release, Gatekeeper. As well, Alec and I are about to release Uru Doshi with Cigar Dojo. Alec and I both feel like we have gained the trust of tobacconists and enthusiasts. We asked for more capacity at Raices Cubanas to increase production of Blind Faith and we got it. Now we have the ability to get Blind Faith in the hands of more cigar lovers.”
“Bradley and I are very excited to expand the availability of Blind Faith,” said Alec Rubin. “This is the first time Alec & Bradley and Alec Bradley will be exhibiting at TPE; we thought that the show was a great opportunity to share this very special moment in our careers.”
