Cigar News: Dupont Announces Initial Lighter

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – S.T.’s New Initial To Begin Shipping January 30 To Retailers Nationwide

Pinellas Park, FL (January 19, 2017) – Exactly seventy-five years after S. T. invented the first luxury petrol , the famous “Maison” is celebrating the anniversary with the launch of a new gas that has a resolutely contemporary style and an affordable price tag.


The NEW Initial proudly displays its affiliation with the revolutionary model that was created by S. T. in 1941, for a special commission from the Maharaja of Patiala, who was known as “The Magnificent”.

This entirely modern new model has been inspired by the timeless style of its celebrated predecessor, which went on to become an icon for S. T. aficionados. In particular, it features the guilloche cap, rounded corners and roller, and double flame in perfect keeping with its sleek brass body.


The NEW Initial has no trouble taking its place in the long line of iconic S. T. lighters. Seventy-five years after created the first luxury petrol , which would forever be associated with the brand, this new “flame holder” bears all the hallmarks of an “S.T.”: the parallelepiped shape, the perfect combination of the body shaped by the Faverges silversmiths, the unique lighting action and the instantly recognizable, crystal-clear ring of the cap when it is opened.


Understated, yet unquestionably elegant, compact and pleasant to hold, this new S. T. embodies essential and sensual luxury, far from flashy yet crafted to the high quality standards of a French firm founded in 1872.

The new INITIAL double flame is available in two different designs, vertical lines or squares and available in both gold bronze and white bronze. This new also coincides with the rollout of S.T.’s new multi-refill butane; allowing up to 14 refills per can when used with the Initial . For a limited time, consumers can receive a free can of the new gas when an Initial is purchased. Suggested Retail (US): $496
