Hiram & Solomon Cigars Launch Curamus
[Feb. 28, 2021] PRESS RELEASE Hiram & Solomon Cigars has announced their latest addition to the company’s core line of Freemasons branded cigars. The Curamus is a cigar that was specially crafted for MW Robert V. Monacelli, Grand Master of the Most Ancient and Honorable Society of Freemasons, for the State of New Jersey.
The Freemasons are the largest and oldest fraternal organization with a mission to: “Promote a way of life that binds like-minded men with the principles of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth in order to serve God, Family, Country, Neighbor and self.” Hiram & Solomon Cigars has donated, through their cigar sales, tens of thousands of dollars to Masonic charities including the Shriners Children’s Hospital and also to non-Masonic community events.
Owner, Fouad Kashouty noted, “Our latest addition to the company’s portfolio is named Curamus, a Latin word which translates to “we care“, a simple, yet important mantra for Freemasons. Like those that preceded them, Curamus will follow in the tradition of giving as noted in a letter from the MW Grand Master, which states a portion of the proceeds will go to White Flower Society and Almoner’s Fund for the Scottish Rite of the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction.”
The Curamus is hand crafted at PDR Cigars Factory, in Tamboril, Dominican Republic. This is the first time Hiram & Solomon has used Abe Flores and his factory. The Curamus has a rich multi country blend [sic]:
