Habanos World Days is returning in a spectacular way this summer as we are set to celebrate with three days of Habanos events dedicated to the 55th anniversary of Trinidad in London.

Hunters & Frankau are collaborating with Habanos S.A to host three major events in June on Thursday 20th, Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd. An amazing program has been organized for this landmark occasion in London and we are delighted to be involved with hosting a cigar sampling on the evening of Friday 21st June.

We will be two retailers, James J Fox Flagship and La Casa del Habano James J Fox in Harrods, of 55 across the UK simultaneously hosting sampling events on the Friday evening. We anticipate many of the most respected and knowledgeable cigar aficionados across the world joining the events in London and the UK for what will be a fantastic occasion.

While the events on Friday will not be sampling the Trinidad Cabildos (2024 Habanos Edición Limitada) – that privilege is reserved for the Saturday night Gala Dinner being held at London's V&A Museum – retailers will be providing an evening with Trinidad cigars of their choosing. The cigars will be paired with the fine spirits they feel pair best with the cigar.

For us at 19 St James’s Street, we will be sampling two exceptional Trinidad cigars with a truly “World Days” inspired cocktail and two of Tesseron’s Signature collection cognacs.

On arrival we will greet guests with an aficionado favourite, Trinidad Reyes, and a specially curated pairing cocktail. More information to come on the cocktail in the next few weeks. We will move on to the Trinidad Esmeralda shortly into the evening as we also move on to the cognacs. The Esmeralda has really become a favourite of cigar enthusiasts, becoming the marque cigar of the Trinidad brand in recent times since the Fundadores has become all too scarce in availability. Launched in 2018, the first Vitola of its kind known as Dinoras (5 ¾’’ (145mm)) x 53 RG), the cigar fits perfectly into the brand’s core flavour profile. We will be joined by an ambassador from Hunters & Frankau to give a short speech on the cigar, Trinidad and the Habanos World Days. We are also delighted to welcome back Tesseron’s Europe and Africa Sales Director, Arnaud Dean, to present the cognacs we will be pairing with the cigar.

Our shared passion for the finest handmade cigars in the world will see us unite in London for what we expect to be a sensational few days. We look forward to seeing the Habanos cigar community throughout the week, whether catching up with old friends or making acquaintance with new ones. London has always been a home away from Havana for Habanos cigars, with retailers offering amazing experiences in the city, contributing to an exquisite London shopping experience. Just like Fashion Week arriving in the major hubs of style, Milan, Paris, New York and London, we’re delighted that Habanos is arriving in London for this cigar extravaganza.

James J Fox will host a cigar event on Friday 21st June in conjunction with Habanos World Days being in London. Book your place at James J Fox for an historic night in the UK for Cuban Cigars.
