Cuban Elegance Meets Scottish Class: La Casa del Habanos and Puffin Rooms Open in Edinburgh
In a city renowned for its cultural sophistication and historic allure, the grand opening of La Casa del Habano (LCDH) by C.Gars Ltd marks a significant milestone. Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital, welcomed its first ever establishment dedicated to Cuban cigars on September 12, 2023. Nestled in the luxurious Quartermile development, this venue promises to redefine the experience of enjoying cigars and fine spirits in the city.
Mitchell Orchant, Founder of C.Gars Ltd and Chief Commercial Officer of Dominique London, was enthusiastic about the inauguration. His decision to bring LCDH to Edinburgh was carefully calculated, backed by a 25-year rapport with the Scottish cigar community and robust online sales data. Orchant stated, “We have developed a comprehensive database of cigar enthusiasts in Scotland over the last 25 years. This data and Edinburgh’s thriving tourist destination made it the ideal location for this new, extraordinary venue.”
As one steps into the elegant space of this novel sanctuary for cigar enthusiasts, an alluring central bar immediately sets the tone for what is expected to be an unforgettable sensory journey. The venue boasts an extensive range of exclusively Cuban cigars, among them luxurious options like the Cohiba 55th Aniversario Cigar (2021 Limited Edition), UK exclusive regional edition cigars, and La Casa del Habano specialities. Various seating options, ranging from secluded corners for intimate conversations to more open, sociable bar areas, accommodate all preferences.
Scotland’s strict tobacco laws could have been an obstacle, as indoor sampling is prohibited. However, La Casa del Habano ingeniously solves this problem by offering a heated outdoor terrace. This compliant space allows patrons to savour their cigars while also enjoying flights of whisky or rum, cocktails, and wine.
Adding another layer to this sumptuous experience is the Puffin Rooms, which are open seven days a week. Featuring over 200 rare whiskies, an exquisite menu of small dishes, and live music, the Puffin Rooms complement the high-end cigar offerings, making a visit to La Casa del Habano a comprehensive indulgence for all senses.
For those keen to partake in this unique experience, the venue is conveniently located at 11 Lister Square, Edinburgh, EH3 9GL. It operates from Monday to Thursday between 11:00 and 23:00, on Fridays and Saturdays from 11:00 to 01:00, and on Sundays from 12:00 to 21:00. Further details can be found on their website, www.puffinrooms.co.uk, or through their email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
All in all, C.Gars Ltd has not just opened a store; it has elevated the cultural and luxury landscape of Edinburgh, solidifying its commitment to delivering the finest Cuban cigars and spirits to the Scottish public. This latest addition from Dominique London, an International cigar and whisky boutique retailer with operations in the UK, Belgium, Switzerland, and Tenerife, only underscores its ongoing mission to provide unparalleled experiences to aficionados and connoisseurs worldwide.
