Cigar-lovers in Chester can now enjoy 'a treasure trove' of rare and unique cigars at a newly expanded tobacco store.
For years, Turmeaus tobacconist on Watergate Street has been a popular fixture in the city centre, allowing customers to sample cigars or pipe tobacco indoors with no fear from the authorities.
But the store, has now undergone a transformation to include La Casa del Habano, and is now the only specially-licensed branch of its type outside London.
As well as providing clients with the chance to sample their chosen Havana cigars in the luxurious sampling lounge before buying, the store will also offer member lockers, a stunning vaulted-ceiling whisky bar and friendly and knowledgeable staff.
Mitchell Orchant, Managing Director of C.Gars Ltd, said: “We are delighted to officially open our La Casa del Habano in Chester.
“We’ve had a presence in the town for many years with our Turmeau's tobacconist, but the new store has given us the opportunity to expand our size and the range of the products we can offer.
"This is a wonderful place to come and relax, have a browse, sample a cigar and take a dram of whisky. We hope to see many new faces in the coming weeks and months.”
