Fans of the brand know its current status fairly well, but for others, Montecristo can be confusing. There are really two Montecristo companies out there. One is the Cuban brand that is the continuation of the longstanding cigar maker that was founded in 1935. The other is a Dominican branch that was launched by ex-pats who fled the island in search of a better life. Both make high-quality cigars, and both are known around the world as premium cigar makers.
You’ll find common logo elements on many of our Montecristo ashtrays. There’s the classic fleur de lis and also the six swords, both reminiscent of the story behind the brand. André Dumas’s legendary novel The Count of Monte Cristo was a favorite of rollers to listen to while working. Readers called lectors would go through not just books but also newspapers, plays, and perhaps the occasional tract. It made the time go by faster, and it ultimately gave a name to one of the world’s great cigar brands.
The Montecristo ashtrays you’ll find here have ample capacity for multiple cigars’ worth of ash, and also often feature saddles or holders so you can put your cigar down while keeping it lit and off the table. No more do you have to balance it on the edge of anything. Your cigars will have a mid-smoke home befitting of their quality.
If you know a Montecristo fan, this would make a great gift.
