Kaliman Caribe introduced to the world San Cristóbal de la Habana Pradon

Havana | October 24th, 2018

Sofia became for one  evening the world capital of Habanos.

Last October 4th, 2018 at the Boyana Residence , Sofia, Bulgaria the international launch of one of the latest Habano of San Cristóbal de la Habana brand, was presented by Kaliman Caribe, Exclusive Distributor for Habanos, S.A. in the territory . With the vitola named after the iconic Prado Boulevard in Havana. For the first time, Bulgaria had the honour to be the global venue of a product launch.

Mr Rodrigo Gonzáles, Habanos Strategic Marketing Director, and Mrs Olia Docheva, the Kaliman Caribe Company’s Bulgarian Managing Director, introduced the new Habano before more than 500 guests. The audience came from many different parts of the world: “Cuban gold” aficionados, partners and distributors from Spain, Cuba, Switzerland, Italy, the USA, China, France, Venezuela, Cyprus, Armenia, Albania, Romania, Macedonia, Croatia, Slovenia, Kosovo, etc.

Boyana Residence had the look and feel of the Havana Boulevard from which the Habano took its name. Cuban-style vintage cars gave rides to the entrance. The attendees were entertained by Banda Del Padre’s performances of Buena Vista Social Club’s and other Cuban classics. Miro, was the special guest performer, who raised the mood with his greatest hits.

 The evening culminated in bachata and other Latin beat dance animations. The guests had the chance to enjoy a special selection of beverages and gourmet catering, and, of course, the taste of the new cigar before it hits the international markets.

 The launch of the San Cristóbal de la Habana Prado has anticipated two important anniversaries. In 2019, Havana will celebrate its 500 years as capital, and the San Cristobal brand will mark its 20th anniversary as well. Earlier this year, between August 20th and September 3rd, Kaliman Caribe, with the support of the Sofia Capital Municipality, the Cuban Cultural Fund and the Cuban Embassy in Bulgaria, showed an exhibition on the Lovers’ Bridge near the National Palace of Culture (NDK). “Atmosphere from Sofia and Havana” was dedicated to both anniversaries—60 images from different angles showed amazing cultural, architectural and social parallels between both ageless capitals.
