Hunters And Frankau Summer Party to take place in October
This year's Hunters & Frankau Summer Party is due to take place on Tuesday, 15th October on board the HQS Wellington. Hunters & Frankau have not formally announced themselves the details above; the information has come from a solid enough source, the online blog of Mitchell Orchant. Previous H&F Summer Parties have previously taken place in May or June, however I would assume this year's event has been pushed back so that the unveiling of the La Flor de Cano Gran Cano can take place at the event.
This year, as with many of the previous Hunter & Frankau Summer Parties, will mark the unveiling of a new Regional Edition for Great Britain. The La Flor de Cano Gran Cano will have it's first outing at the Summer Party. The Gran Cano measures in at five and a half inches by fifty ring gauge. I'm really looking forward to this release because of two things: I like the Gorditos size, and Hunters & Frankau have done exceptionally well in the past with reproducing a blend for a previous Regional Edition for Great Britain, the La Flor de Cano Short Robustos.
The HQS Wellington is moored next to the Temple Stairs on the Victoria Embankment. Cigar events on board boats and vessels has always been a popular pairing for many years. The Hunters & Frankau Summer Party taking place this on the HQS Wellington will make for an 'interesting' venue I'm sure.
No news as of yet what time the event will start, or the ticket price, if I get any new information, I will post it here on the site or via my Twitter Feed.
