A new trade magazine for the cigar industry has been launched by Paragraph Publishers, which also produces Scotland Magazine and Whisky Magazine.
Cigar Buyer, a 44-page glossy magazine, will be distributed to hotels, bars and specialist retailers on a controlled subscription basis with an initial print run of 6,000.
Produced twice a year, it will be featurebased with sections on cigar tasting and some news.
Editor and publisher Damian RileySmith says there is no equivalent trade title. “This is the only trade publication in the UK dedicated to giving information on a product that is so important to the profit of bars, hotels and specialist retailers,” he explained.
