Press Release: Davidoff Ladies‘ Masterclass in the Caribbean - Enjoying cigars at sunset



Basel/Altos de Chavón (D.R.), March 2015.

The first Ladies‘ Masterclass in the Caribbean was held by Oettinger Davidoff AG and Casa de Campo, Premier Resorts & Hotels, on 23 February 2015 in Altos de Chavón, La Romana, Dominican Republic.

During the champagne reception, the Dominican Trio “Grupo Bien”, sang the most popular rancheros of the island and welcomed the ladies who wanted to learn more about cigars at first hand. In the light of a magnificent sunset, the 40 invited señoras gathered on the terrace of the Café Marietta in the pituresque Altos de Chavón for the pleasant and content-rich master class, which was held under the motto "Time Beautifully Filled".

Vincent Krembel, International Brand Ambassador of Oettinger Davidoff AG, demonstrated the dos and don'ts of cigar enjoyment during the sensory soirée - from selecting the cigar, lighting and cutting it and to how to enjoy it. The programme also included a brief introduction of the process of tobacco production, from the seeding and harvesting to the blending and rolling of a premium cigar. This was followed by tapas and a cigar tasting session, allowing the participants to finish the evening with Caribbean flair.

"The Davidoff Ladies‘ Masterclass is aimed at modern women who want to discover the world of cigars. Women who like to spend time together and enjoy asking questions about cigars without any inhibitions. Whether in London, Brussels, Vienna, or here in the Dominican Republic, we are increasingly noticing from the increasing demand, that enjoying cigars is no longer exclusively a man's privilege," confirms Paloma Szathmáry, Senior Vice President Corporate Communications of Oettinger Davidoff AG.

Those who had acquired a taste were able to continue the evening's rich gourmet journey by visiting the tobacco fields and Davidoff's production premises.
