Tobacconists across the us partner w/ Phillips & King for a special Dads And Grads Event.

The early summer shopping season brings customers in search of the perfect gift for two special events that take place in June: Father’s Day and college graduations. It’s also that time of year when cigar and pipe lovers begin to enjoy the wonderful weather that brings us together for a good smoke.

From June 1st -19th, Phillips & King International and its family of brands, Ventura Cigar Company, 4th Generation and Comoy’s Pipe Tobacco, will partner together with brick and mortar shops across the U.S. for a series of special “Fathers, Friends and Fire” tasting events. “These events will give pipe and cigar enthusiasts an opportunity to gather and share fellowship while getting a chance to taste some very special premium cigars and pipe tobaccos,” says Phillips & King CMO Jason Carignan.

Each Fathers, Friends and Fire gathering will feature promotional giveaways, special pricing on products so that attendees can stock up for the summer months, and will spotlight either cigars or pipes. For the cigar-themed events, Ventura Cigar Company will feature the highly-rated cigar brands, PsyKo SEVEN and Project 805, and its team of brand ambassadors will be on-hand to conduct tastings and share their product knowledge.

The pipe-themed events will highlight the specialty pipe tobaccos and exotic pipes from 4th Generation and Comoy’s. Brand Manager and pipe tobacco legend Erik Stokkebye will be at select events on the tour, educating new and experienced pipe smokers alike on choosing the best blends and accessories to fit their taste.

Due to the wide availability of locations for the Fathers, Friends and Fire stops, the events are anticipated to draw groups of pipe and cigar fans for meetups in each region. For more information, locations, and dates of these events, please visit us at www.facebook.com/fathersfriendsandfire.
