Southern Draw 300 Hands
300 HANDS, is an all too real story of collaboration told through a "value" line of premium cigars from Southern Draw Cigars. The result of approximately 300 small steps and those hands producing nearly identical handmade rolled bundles of our patiently aged and naturally fermented tobaccos that we know as premium cigars. The process of hand making a premium cigar is a deliberate marriage of art and skill that has been passed down from generation to generation and our beloved Nicaragua, with its complex tobaccos and dedicated people, is now the most prominent supplier of this unique art form to the United States. 300 HANDS is a celebration of the most distinctive tobaccos born of Nicaragua’s special combination of soil, temperature and sunlight, each blended with complementary tobaccos from other growing regions offering a differing, yet refined processes and most notably, the tobacco stained hands that meticulously perform every step required to produce a Southern Draw cigar. It is the people of Nicaragua that we believe are now the backbone of this great industry.
300 HANDS will share premium cigars and honest stories of Nicaraguan people in a concerted effort to provide a hopeful future for at least some of these families by offering financial assistance in and around Esteli, Nicaragua. “We want to share this story with the masses and have initially priced this cigar line in a range of $5.99 - $6.49 while expanding our charitable giving strategy to Nicaragua. We hope to continue to distribute 25% of our profits to those Nicaraguans that offered us their honest stories and identified specific needs in and around their own communities,” per Sharon Holt of Southern Draw. 300 HANDS was unveiled at IPCPR 2018. “We hereby ask our valued retail and media partners to join us as we endeavor to share the stories of 300 Nicaraguan brothers and sisters, using their words, their emotions and their heartfelt pleas to help their neighbors. We have high hopes for a better Nicaragua as they fight to overcome decades old struggles that have just recently escalated into what has been deemed a “newsworthy” crisis, “ stated Robert Holt of Southern Draw. “They are 300 HANDS” and “this is their story.
