Fratello Cigars and Omar de Frias announced the debut of the Fratello Navetta. The Navetta will make its debut at IPCPR 2017. Omar de Frias, owner of Fratello Cigars, worked at NASA for 12 years prior to leaving to focus full time on Fratello. The Navetta is a dream project de Frias envisioned during his previous career at NASA. Translated from the word ‘shuttle’ in Italian, the Navetta pays homage to the space program and the fine men and women at NASA.
“Blending Fratello Naveta was special as I wanted to translate the ultimate celebration our men and women of the space program felt after a successful mission”. “After being part of over 21 missions nothing beats the feeling of getting our astronauts home safe to their families” said de Frias.
“Colleagues of mine would get together and smoke a very special cigar to commemorate the occasion. This very special blend carries the ultimate feeling of innovation, duty, honor and success” said de Frias.
The Fratello Navetta is blended with an Ecuador oscuro wrapper. The blend will be featured in four vitolas listed below:
- Robusto Discovery (5 x 50) $10.50
- Toro Endeavor (6 ¼ x 54) $11.25
- Gordo Enterprise (6 x 60) $12.00
- The Boxer Atlantis (6 ¼ x 52) $12.50
The Fratello Navetta will be manufactured at Joya de Nicaragua, and they will be available for shipment in September 2017. Be on the look out for this amazing cigar!
