General Cigar Extends Portfolio to Include Humidor Accessories.
General Cigar announces that the company will extend its portfolio of top-selling cigars to include a complete selection of humidor accessories, shipping to retailers in October, via the Humi-Care range of products.
Regis Broersma, president of General Cigar said, “We are always looking for ways to better serve the trade. By offering a full line of humidor accessories, we’re able to provide retailers with the convenience of one-stop shopping. With products priced considerably less than comparable items available on the market, some of which being exclusive and patented, the benefits of Humi-Care are many.”
The range of Humi-Care products to be sold by General Cigar includes the following items.
Cigar Juice – A propylene glycol solution ideal for maintaining optimal humidity levels in jars and pillows, Cigar Juice is available in an 8 oz or 16 oz bottle, for a per-bottle SRP of $6.99 and $8.99, respectively.

Black Ice Pie Jar – Another top-seller in the Humi-Care line, this patented product can be split into four pieces to take up minimal space in the humidor, while delivering radiant humidity. The Black Ice Pie Jar is available in a four oz. (SRP is $12.50) and 8 oz. size (SRP is $14.99).
