MERIDEN, Conn., May 04, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The classic American cigar brand, Topper Cigars, boasts growing sales in 2017 as adult consumer interest in traditional American cigars grows. At a time where vintage tees are cooler than high fashion, adult Americans are increasingly drawn to retro styling and traditional companies – and the cigar industry is no exception.

Steeped in history, for over 120 years Topper Cigars has been a classic American cigar brand and the company has prided itself on producing natural leaf cigars at a value-to-quality price point. The Connecticut based Topper family business is now in the hands of Chris Topper, the fourth generation of Toppers to maintain the family legacy.  In the past two years, Chris has noted a significant uptick in interest in price-value Connecticut Broadleaf wrapped cigars at wholesale and retail, and the Topper family plans to tap into that demand.

Chris comments: “For over a century the Topper brand has had a strong following of devoted cigar smokers, but recently our sales and markets have expanded as natural leaf cigars are making a comeback against many of the mass-market cigars that are seen at retail. As adult consumers shift to natural leaf, we hear from our retailers and from consumers that the natural leaf taste, the feel of natural tobacco, and the retro look of the Topper brand is what is driving the resurgence –this is all leading to a pivotal moment for Topper Cigars. We’ve become a trendy brand again and as a result the Topper company is experiencing record sales in 2017.

“We believe interest in natural leaf cigars will continue to accelerate, and we plan to grow our distribution outside of our traditional stronghold in the North East across the country.“

Topper continues to offer high-quality cigars at a value price for the everyday cigar smokers. As consumer interest in this quintessential American brand and natural leaf cigars continues to grow, Topper anticipates continued success in the years ahead.
