The origin of the humidor

A journey through the centuries of preservation.

This fascinating story, which began in the 19th century, is rooted in a time when connoisseurs set out on a quest to preserve the quality of their tobacco. At that time, the appreciation of a cigar was already a delicate art and it was necessary to create an optimal environment for its preservation.

The term "humidor" has its origins in the Spanish word "humedad", which means humidity. This etymology underlines the crucial importance attached to maintaining the ideal humidity level in order to preserve the freshness and exquisite flavours of cigars.

Over the centuries, cigar boxes have evolved far beyond their original function as simple containers. They have developed into true masterpieces in the art of storage. They combine ingenious craftsmanship with technological innovation. This development reflects the enduring passion of cigar lovers for their art and the constant adaptation to modern storage requirements.

Choosing a humidor is a commitment to a centuries-old tradition of preserving the flavourful heritage of cigars. Each box thus becomes the guardian of a heritage and preserves the essence of the cigar from generation to generation. When we discover the origins of the humidor, we embark on a journey through the centuries and explore the development of this delicate art.

The essential role of humidity

The preservation of cigars depends on maintaining a certain level of humidity. These boxes are equipped with hygrometers that create an ideal microclimate inside. This preserves the freshness and flavour of the cigars for months or even years.

These precise built-in hygrometers constantly monitor the moisture content inside the box, ensuring that the cigars are kept in the best possible conditions. The extremely moisture-resistant bamboo, in combination with the hygrometer technology, ensures a perfect environment in which the unique flavours of the tobacco are preserved.


High-quality materials

The humidors, which are made from high-quality materials such as bamboo, also see the elegant introduction of glass. The glass creates an elegant showcase that highlights each cigar like a work of art.

This fusion of high-quality materials provides a refined visual experience while maintaining the integrity of the optimal environment necessary for storage. Choosing a humidor is choosing the perfect combination of aesthetics and functionality. This provides a complete view of your valuable collections, allowing for visual appreciation while maintaining the optimal environment.

The advantages of a compact humidor

The smaller humidors are the ideal solution for mobile cigar lovers or those who prefer a smaller collection. These humidors are portable and allow any cigar lover to enjoy their favourite cigars at any time. The easy access that these compact models offer becomes a great advantage, allowing the cigar experience to be enjoyed without space restrictions.

In addition to practicality, opting for the smaller humidor is also due to a more personal and intimate approach to cigar enjoyment. With a smaller collection, each cigar takes on a special meaning, creating a deeper connection between the collector and their selection. The compact model is thus transformed into a faithful companion, ready to fulfil the collector's wishes wherever they may be.
