I have always wanted to honour my Grandfather's artistic legacy as well as his service during WWII. Not only did my Grandfather conduct a brave protest against the Nazis with his cypher messages hidden within his artwork created within the war prisoner camps but that he was also a member of MI9 which included the planning of POW escapes.
The name of this unique line of cigars Cypher 3311 as well as the names given to the vitolas – Enigma, Colossus, Needle and Lorenz, refer to the secret war conducted during WW2. „3311“ was Jeremy’s Grandfather’s POW number. The „Coat of Arms“ used as this line’s primary image replicates one of his Grandfather’s wartime embroideries.
The blends chosen as well as the imagery on the packaging contain hidden messages that can be discovered by the smoker. The exotic tobaccos of the Cypher 3311 vitolas are rare and expensive thus creating a truly unique blend that requires aging once the cigar is made. Each cigar will indicate clearly its year of production on its box. There will only be a maximum of 4,000 of each of the 4 cigars made annually.
A percentage of every cigar sale will be donated to the Red Cross whose relentless work continues to alleviate human suffering across the world.
In celebration of the new cigar line the book “A Stitch in Time. God save the King – Fu*k Hitler!” is republished. It is the main source of inspiration for the Cypher 3311 cigar line. 25% of the book’s proceeds will be donated to the Red Cross. Also, a Cypher 3311 thematic silk pocket square is available for purchase.
