VENTURA CIGAR COMPANY INTRODUCES CASE STUDY – NEW CIGAR BRAND PAYS HOMAGE TO MID-CENTURY MODERN ARCHITECTURE

August 5, 2016 – Ventura Cigar Co. has released their second new super-premium brand for 2016, Case Study. The new line is an exploration of classic Southern California artistry in architecture, honoring the culture of the company’s home region.

The concept was revealed at the International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers (IPCPR) trade show in Las Vegas on July 25th, 2016. From 1945 to 1966, Arts & Architecture magazine commissioned the rising stars of mid-century architecture to design and build a series of inexpensive, efficient model homes for the post-World War II generation. In total, 26 homes were built, mostly in the Greater Los Angeles area, by renowned architects including Richard Neutra, Charles and Ray Eames, Pierre Koenig and Eero Saarinen. These now iconic homes were designed with a minimalist, modern aesthetic and have been prominently highlighted over the years in Hollywood films, advertising campaigns and photo essays.CASE_STUDY_01_TORPEDO_LRG

The Case Study cigar project from Ventura Cigar Co. pays homage to this triumph of modernist design. Numbered from 1 through 26, each exclusive Case Study blend features a range of vitolas that have been made at some of the best factories in the industry. We can’t reveal the names of the master cigar blenders that we worked with, but the signature of their craft will be recognizable to cigar fans that pay close attention, says Chief Marketing Officer Jason Carignan.CASE_STUDY_01_CHURCHILL_LRG

The extensive list of blends and sizes are listed below. The cigars feature a clean white band with a stark black font. A selection of the blends will be limited release only, distinguished by reversed colors on the bands. The box design also honors the mid-century aesthetic; upcycling leftover wooden cigar box material to create a striking, minimalist plywood that conveys the influence of the brand’s inspiration. Case Study is now available exclusively from Phillips & King International.
