IPCPR 2019: Drew Estate: ACID 20

So you probably guessed it after seeing all the ACID intros to our trade show videos, Drew Estate pulled out the stops to honor the 20th Anniversary of ACID. Josh Roque takes us on a tour of a booth within a booth, the not-so-secret flavor playground of Fabien Ziegler, the ACID 20 booth.

IPCPR 2019: Drew Estate Part 3

IPCPR 2019: Fratello

IPCPR 2019: Fratello

In our travels around the trade show floor on the third day we dropped by the Fratello booth to get the latest from our friend Omar de Frias. There’s a lot going on with Fratello this year, Omar is three new products, the diminutive Fratello Piccolo, the Navetta Inverso Boxer, and the Space Pack. There’s also an exclusive cigar coming for Texas around October, and we will be seeing more exclusives in the Fratello State Series. And if that wasn’t …
