The Montana Cigar Story
"After a truly good meal, an outstanding cigar is still the most satisfying after-dinner activity that doesn't involve two human beings." Brad Shaw
Like in all things, us Montanans just do it better. This would include cigars. We have a rich history in cigars here in Montana and we here at the Big Sky Cigar Co. have a mission to bring that tradition back to life.
In 1905, Montana had over 107 Cigar factories within the state. With only a little over 240,000 people in the entire territory at the time, that equates to 1 cigar factory for every 2,200 people. Designed locally and created with the highest quality ingredients, Big Sky Cigar, Co. Cigars aim to bring that type of high quality supply access back to Montana.
Back in the heyday of Cigars in Montana, tobacco was imported from around the world from countries like Jamaica, Java, Haiti, and Nicaragua. This tobacco would arrive in Montana where skilled rollers would design and make the best cigars in the country at affordable prices for their neighbors.
We here at Big Sky Cigar Co. want to rediscover the tradition of the Montana Cigar. We are delivering to you the highest quality tobacco from Central America, rolled with the utmost care, at a price that will allow all, legal aged, Montanans to enjoy. Like the rollers of Montana’s past, we offer this gift to you, neighbors.
When you take your first draw off of a Big Sky Cigar, Co. cigar remember the Miners of Butte, the Lumberjacks of our great forests, the Ranchers of the vast Eastern Montana Plains, the Railroad Workers that built our infrastructure. Remember with each draw you are now a part of a Montana Tradition of Cigars. Long ashes my friends.
