(Herring, Boat, Dirt)
Four Generations of Ridic Delish
In the summer of 1916 Hans Nielsen Lahkso was hired as a boat hand for the United Royal Finnish Herring Oil Company, Ltd. His boat sank off the coast of Iceland soon thereafter. Luckily for young Hans, he was brought to shore by a school of fish that raised him as one of their own. After gaining many friends and amassing an almost comical wealth, young Hans moved to Cuba where he invented dirt. He used to keep this dirt in a secret wooden box in his bed, next to his blankie. This is why we put Eastern Standard Cigars in a wooden box…it is representative of the box Hans used to keep his dirt in.
After losing all of his money in a series of bad investments, Hans fled to Dominican Republic, carrying his special dirt with him in his little box. So as to not raise suspicion, he hid the box under his blankie. Hans passed his tradition of dealing dirt down through the generations.
The Eastern Standard Brand pays homage to this 100 year history.
Each box has a very old Finnish saying “Herring, Dirt, Boat”, which is meant to celebrate what the old Herringer-os thought made them happy: Herring, Dirt, and Boats.
There was only one thing missing from this formula:
“Live East, Die Young.”
Dont believe the hype. Make your time count.
You are invited July 11th from 5PM - 9PM to try some amazing cigars and meet an amazing woman. Ernesto Perez Carrillo is considered to be the Godfather of boutique cigars. His family has made some amazing smokes and Lissette Carrillo, his daughter, is going to be at West Coast. With the new family cigar business, Perez-Carrillo has returned to her roots. Her grandfather started El Credito Cigar Co. in Cuba in 1948 and reopened in Miami after the family fled the country. Lissette started working at the company when she was a little girl, putting the rings on the cigars and wrapping the cigars in cellophane. As she got older, she moved into office work. Her father's creation of a new La Gloria Cubana cigar in 1992 catapulted the company to fame, and her father sold El Credito in 1999. Now Lissette, her father and her brother run their new boutique family cigar business together.
