CIGAR & SPIRITS MAGAZINE SETTING SIGHTS HIGH FOR 2011

The First Publication to Feature both Cigars and Spirits, as well as Club Based Membership

Cigar & Spirits Magazine is an up and coming quarterly publication tailored to the upscale gentleman or woman. This publication, for both industry and consumer audiences, is for those who believe that there is nothing in life like a great cigar, your spirit of choice, and good company. The publication is available online, as well as in print. The focus is on reviewing top of the line existing brands, as well as new brands breaking ground in the industry. Not only will Cigar & Spirits cover the brands in these categories, but the magazine will include industry news, as well as information about related lifestyle topics.

Featured in each issue is the “Lounge of the Month,” highlighting a different top notch cigar lounge in each magazine, which will be honored by receiving a plaque from the Cigar & Spirits Tasting Club. Additionally, reviews and stories range from golf courses and sports, to Las Vegas and nightlife, and topics that appeal to those with the finest taste in leisure. Industry interviews with the individuals that make things happen round out the theme. The Cigar & Spirits Tasting Club is the membership element that is meant to provide cigar and spirits tasting enthusiasts with a platform to network and join together in the hobbies that they love. Some of the best experiences and relationships have developed over a fine cigar and spirit- the discussions about life, philosophy, politics, business, family, and of course the laughs that arise and create lasting friendships. This is the club that meets wherever you are and whoever you are with that enjoys this side of life. Look for Club CST to host industry and consumer tastings in the coming months.

Lincoln Salazar, the Chairman and CEO of Cigar & Spirits Magazine, has successfully started and run three businesses prior to the publication, and was nominated for Entrepreneur of the Year in 2008 by the Orange County Business Journal. Mr. Salazar believes that “there is a certain bond, respect, and etiquette that we carry for the hobbies we all share,” and that “Cigar & Spirits Magazine and Club CST are not for just anyone. It is for gentlemen, the charming woman, and establishing new business or personal relationships.” Cigar & Spirits Magazine and Club CST have their sights set high for 2011. Look for CST as they grow their online presence and print distribution as the first publication focusing on cigars and spirits, as well as club based membership.
