The new “Crafted By” series by JR Cigar will offer its customers some interesting and unique collaborations with some of the industry’s most well known manufacturers. Their first collaboration is Crafted by JR: Crowned Heads.
Each Crafted By JR release will focus on a collaboration with a different manufacturer, but unlike most private labels, these will be built from the ground up by the JR Cigar team. From the name and logo design, to packaging and the blend profile, every step of the cigar creation process has been planned, developed and executed by the JR team. And for the first Crafted By JR cigar, they turned to one of the most sought-after manufacturers in the industry – Crowned Heads.
As we showed with our Pure Origin line, we at JR Cigar are capable of far more than simply being one of the world’s most reliable retailers. I’m excited to begin working with this incredibly talented and knowledgeable team who can take the JR brand much further than ever before. Crafted by JR: Crowned Heads is another amazing example of our ability to create, enhance and expand our brand.
Brad Winstead, CEO of JR Cigar
