Late blog due to huge work effort last week at our new Cambridge Whisky & Cigar shop. We were hoping to open last Tuesday but the builders had not quite finished so I decided to delay for a week and we now plan to open this Tuesday.
The shop looks quite beautiful if I do say so myself! Spacious and comfortable for browsing and for sampling.
Our range is just about complete with huge stocks of Havana cigars, other premium cigars, machine made cigars and Continental cigars. In fact if you can’t find it here it’s probably not worth smoking 🙂 We have two humidors – On the ground floor we have an absolutely massive range of single cigars and on the lower ground floor our main humidor. Our main humidor showcases other singles and a large range of full boxes of Havanas and other premium cigars but we are always happy to open any boxes for single sales.
Robert Graham Ltd – Cambridge features the full range of our Independent bottled award winning whisky as well as a comprehensive range of other single malt whisky that can only be found in specialist whisky shops. We also have a great value range of wine and champagne.
My favourite feature is the sampling lounge where customers are welcome to sample our whisky as well as cigars and pipe tobacco (You will need to complete cigar sampling forms of course) in comfort. We are planning some great whisky and cigar tasting evenings in January.
The shop is easy to find as its at 9 Sussex street in the centre of Cambridge. Sussex street is pedestrianized but we have a loading bay outside the other entrance to the shop in Hobson Street (You may need to print off directions from Google maps as most navigators seem to give up a few hundred feet away!)
My thanks to my merchandizing Team (Lucia and Marcie from C.Gars Ltd, Rosie from Turmeaus Chester and our new Robert Graham boys Alasdair and Freddy) and a warm welcome to Cailin Morrison who will be managing Cambridge and Chris Morrison who is assisting us at Robert Graham Edinburgh… Yes we are a family business!
Thanks to all of our suppliers for their kind assistance in making our Cambridge emporium a reality. I’m looking forward to welcoming C.Gars Ltd and Robert Graham Ltd customers and expect to be popping into the lounge weekly. All comments/criticism on the humidors appreciated – Especially as I merchandised them (I have the aches and pains to prove it!)
If you’re one of our customers at Chester Turmeaus check out the photo of the remerchandised walk in humidor – Larger range than ever and looking better than ever – Well done to Calum, our resident cigar specialist and Manageress Jayne.
15 days till Christmas and don’t I know it! Literally 1000’s of mail orders over the past weekend – We can hardly see the doors of our warehouses for post bags! Plenty of time to get your orders in time still, we have huge stocks of just about everything on our websites whether you are buying a gift or treating yourself to some fine cigars or whisky for the holidays.
Have a smokey week
