The Goldwin Tobacco Company produces, retails and wholesales fine tobacco from around the world. The creation of the Goldwin product line, came from Grand Metropolitan Chairman/CEO Vin Lee’s personal blend. For many years, Lee had fine luxury cigars created for his own personal use and as gifts for family, friends, and associates. This blend was complimented so often, he capitalized on the suggestion to bring it to market.
The company’s flagship product is the LOUIXS cigar. Fit for a king, the LOUIXS is a luxury cigar carefully hand-rolled in rare Rosado leaf, by fifth generation tobacconists. Louix XIV would have been proud.
Today, the Goldwin Tobacco Company works directly with its wholesaler Don Michael, Sarasota, Florida, to bring cigars to tobacconists and aficionados all through North America. Since 2000, Goldwin has been a part of Grand Metropolitan’s tobacco operations. Its products are sold at the Beverly Hills Cigar Club as well as by 100 other private cigar clubs in North America and tobacconists worldwide.
As a boutique firm, Goldwin Tobacco production is limited to only 300,000 sticks of the LOUIXS and 500,000 sticks of Goldwin’s namesake Golconda cigar.
