Drew Estate has unveiled the creation of the ACID Accents collection, an ongoing series of regional exclusives to be available to Drew Diplomat retailers in specific regions, celebrating the 20th Anniversary of ACID cigars.

Exclusive to the New York City area, we are taking it back to our DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) roots with the ACID Accent Jay Street Posse, a 4.5” figurado with a ring gauge ranging from 52-62.

Jonathan Drew, President and Founder of Drew Estate illuminates:
“When we first introduced ACID Cigars, our challenge was having the Retailers accept the brand into their stores because the industry was so extremely conservative.
Now that ACID is truly a top performing brand nationwide, we look to honor those regional pockets of Retailers with local exclusives that are truly bangers.
The Cubans are really good at introducing excellent regional sticks, and I’ve always liked the approach. We want ours to be purposeful and speak to our roots.”
The company also announced they will include a Merchandising Tray with initial shipments of both Accents to retailers.
Future ACID Accents are currently planned to be released in the second half of 2019 for Texas, California, Atlanta and Chicago. Details to be announced, coming soon.
