Drew Estate Shipping Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve Flying Pig Exclusive
Drew Estate announces today the shipping of the Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve Flying Pig to Pappy & Co, owned and operated by the Van Winkle Family.
The Flying Pig is one of the most desired vitolas in the company’s portfolio, presented in a 3 15/16th x 60 ring gauge vitola, and is a favorite amongst cigar enthusiasts worldwide. The shape is based on a photograph of an 1895 cigar salesman’s size selection case reimagined and pioneered by Drew Estate. The Flying Pig is one of the most complicated vitolas to manufacture due to the unique size and signature pig-tail, which requires specialized training of the buncheros and rolleras at the factory.
The Pappy Van Winkle Barrel Fermented Flying Pig is sold exclusively through Pappyco.com. This historic cigar features a barrel fermented “tapa Negra” wrapper over a Mexican San Andres base wrapper, as well as aged Nicaraguan filler tobaccos, personally selected by Jonathan Drew.
From the Wynwood Safehouse, Jonathan Drew Founder and President of Drew Estate notes, “We deeply value the partnership Drew Estate has grown with the Van Winkle family over the years… and what better way to celebrate it than with the unveiling of this exclusive masterpiece!”
Carrie Van Winkle Greener, Co-Founder of Pappy & Company adds, “We are excited to offer something exclusive to our Pappy & Company cigar enthusiast customers. The Flying Pig is such a unique product and unlike anything else on the market. Its distinct size and signature pig-tail, makes this a one of a kind cigar, an instant classic.”
The Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve Flying Pig is packaged in 12 count boxes with an MSRP of $191.80, sold exclusively through pappyco.com.
