If you are looking for specialist tobaccos and cigars then you want to find the best. This is what we provide, but at the lowest possible prices. We know the difference between high and low quality tobacco, we have an experience of nearly three decades and we’re passionate about our products. We only stock tobaccos of the highest quality such as: Cohiba, Partagas, H Upmann, Montecristo, Bolívar, Romeo y Juliet, Hoyo de Monterrey & more. Our selection of gifts coincides with this and includes vintage shavers, Leatherman’s, Swiss Army Knives and Opinel knives, making our store the ideal place to find that perfect present, for that difficult-to-buy-for person. We also stock many luxury cigarettes, authentic snuffs, rolling and pipe tobacco along with our prestigious cuban cigars and are adding new stock all the time to cater for the modern day smokers, such as our fruit flavoured e-cigarettes (which have a minimum of 500 puffs each, come in array of delicious flavours and are the first of their kind being revolutionary in the fact that there is no tobacco, no nicotine and no tar).
Where we started:
Taylors is a family run business that began with a single shop in Brighton, which is still there today. We now have a much larger capacity for the distribution of our products and trade internationally.
We were established in 1989, which was just prior to the ‘Cigar Boom’ of 1992. The import and sales of premium cigars, fine tobacco and snuff rose dramatically during this time and there were many distributors who simply couldn’t keep up with the demand. There was an industry-wide shortage of finished products and raw materials and only the best survived. Taylors was one of them.
We have an outstanding and unrivalled reputation for Cigars, fine tobacco & gift items and believe this is down to our passion for the products we sell. Only the very best will ever make the cut and each item is inspected by hand to guarantee customer satisfaction. We flourished, where others failed, due to knowing our customers and only ever using honest and genuine trading practises over the years. If we weren’t the best at what we do, we simply wouldn’t still be here today.
Tobacco dates back to the 10th century. It’s been a firm favourite with many elite historical figures such as King Edward VII, Queen Victoria, Winston Churchill and almost every Prime Minister and President to date. Cigars have always meant something very individual to everyone, for some they have been a sign of remembrance, mourning and grief, for others they have marked a celebration - with our late Prime Minister Mr Churchill starting the custom of smoking a cigar alongside an evening Brandy as a high class practice.
Classic composer and pianist Franz Liszt stated ’A good Cuban cigar shuts the door on the worlds vulgarities’.
Victorian literary giant, George Sand said ’The elegant lifestyle is not complete without a cigar’.
Cigars and tobacco have played an important role in the lives of many, for thousands of years. This, we appreciate wholeheartedly.
