LAMPERT CIGARS was founded by the lawyer Dr. Stefan Lampert.

The initial idea to create his own cigar brand crossed his mind in 2016 during a vacation in Thailand. Like many other vacationers, Stefan made use of the wide range of tailored suits on the market and wanted to transfer this concept of the tailored suit to a cigar. After all, just like a high-quality tailored suit, every customer has his or her own unique preferences and tastes.

With his brand, he wanted to give customers the opportunity to create their very own handmade premium cigars as if in a laboratory, which is why he named his first cigar line MY CIGAR LAB.

Since the MY CIGAR LAB line was very well received in the cigar world, Stefan was determined to create a cigar that would take cigar aficionados further on his vacation trip and, in addition to the tailored suit, give them the feeling of relaxation and take them away from everyday life for a short time. Various tobacco blends were tried, but only one particularly stuck in his mind. The one with the salty taste.

The blend of this cigar makes you perceive a salty note, reminding you of the sea, which is why Stefan named the cigar OCEAN BREEZE.

To create an even richer and more diverse range of cigars in the portfolio, Stefan looked for more cigar manufacturers in Central America. The choice fell on Nicaragua because of the history of the tobacco, the quality and the great rollers.

It was then that Stefan happened to meet the Ortez family. Stefan and the Ortez family shared thoughts and exchanged ideas about tobacco blends, flavor profiles and shapes. The joint collaboration began and the cigar line LAMPERT 1675 Edición Azul was launched.
The cigar line LAMPERT 1675 Edición Azul was such a success in Europe and the US that Stefan created the cigar line LAMPERT 1675 Edición Rojo in collaboration with the Ortez family. This is a cigar with an Ecuador Connecticut wrapper and a binder and filler from Nicaragua.

And everyone knows that an exquisite rum can be a natural complement to a cigar and enhances the smoking experience.

For this reason, Stefan has also created a matching rum portfolio to his LAMPERT CIGARS under the brand LAMPERT RUM.

Behind the brand “LAMPERT CIGARS” is the Austrian lawyer Dr. Stefan Lampert.

The idea to create his own cigar brand was born in Thailand in 2016 during a vacation stay. Like many other vacationers, Stefan took advantage of the wide range of custom-made suits and wanted to transfer this idea of the custom suit to a cigar. After all, every customer has his or her specific demands and preferences, just as it is with a premium made-to-measure suit.

This is how the first cigar line “MY CIGAR LAB” was created. This brand was intended to give customers the opportunity to create their own premium handmade cigars, as if in a “laboratory”.

After the MY CIGAR LAB line was very well received in the cigar world, the idea for a perfect cigar reminiscent of vacation and relaxation was born. Stefan tried a variety of tobacco blends, but only one particularly stuck in his mind. The one with the salty taste.

The blend of this cigar is reminiscent of the sea, because a slightly salty note is perceptible. The cigar “OCEAN BREEZE” was born.

To add even more variety to the portfolio, Stefan looked for another cigar producer in Central America. Nicaragua was chosen because of its history of tobacco, the quality and its great rollers.

By chance, Stefan then came across Indiana Ortez, the youngest of the Ortez family, daughter of tobacco industry heavyweight Omar Ortez.

The two exchanged ideas and thought about a possible collaboration. Ideas about tobacco blends, flavor profiles and shapes were exchanged.

The joint collaboration began and the cigar line “LAMPERT 1675 Edición Azul” was launched.
