Meerapfel launches a new website. Meerapfel & Sohne is de fourth cigar company that launched a revamped website in the last few months. First to do so was J.C. Newman. Then came PDR. And then New Zealand based distributor Canteros followed. Now it’s time for the European company Meerapfel Cigars.

Even though the website is live, it is not completely finished. Only the Seleccion Meerapfel cigars are visible. And the brands they distribute worldwide. Meerapfel distributes Arturo Fuente and Padron. Their own brands are La Estancia, La Estancia Edicion Exclusiva, Machetero, Square Line and Maestranza. We reviewed the La Estancia Edicion Exclusiva EE 60 recently. A big part of Meerapfel business is the logistics and warehousing of cigars. That subject is coming soon. The same goes for the subjects ‘Cameroon Wrapper’ and ‘Leaf’.

African Cameroon tobacco

Without the Meerapfel family, African Cameroon would be a thing from the past. Where other companies left the African continent, Meerapfel didn’t. They dedicated time and effort into cultivating the rich Cameroon soil. And with success. The leaf regained popularity and is now considered one of the best wrappers out there. It has a distinct flavor that can’t be replicated. Over 80 percent of the wrapper grown in Cameroon, is grown by the Meerapfels.

Meerapfel & Sohne is also an important tobacco trader. That part of the business is also ‘coming soon’ on the website. Their tobacco warehouses in Belgium and The Netherlands are full of aged tobaccos. Cuban leaves dating back fifty to sixty years can be found there. The oldest Cuban crop the company has in storage is from 1957. Some of that tobacco is used as a filler for their La Estancia cigar lines. The company has a history of more than a century. And with this brand new, stylish website, it shows that it’s still a young, fresh and modern company. Ready for today’s fast environment, and ready for the next century.
