Bermudez Rums and Puro Humo Cigars Introduced at Recent Triangle Event
Potential investors and other interested parties recently attended a special VIP private event and presentation to introduce two newly-imported products of the Dominican Republic (DR). C&R Imports and Distribution invited fellow entrepreneurs to a dinner event at Prime Only in downtown Raleigh to learn about this unique investment opportunity. The company is initially importing two premium products of the Dominican Republic, Bermudez Rums and Puro Humo cigars, with future plans to introduce other premium products of the DR to the American consumer.
The first product being imported into the US is considered to be the most legitimate and original rum of the DR. For more than 150 years, House of Bermudez rums have been carefully distilled using the original secret Bermudez family natural distillation and aging process. Puro Humo cigars are the premier cigar of the Dominican Republic. These fine cigars have been hand-rolled using carefully selected, well-aged Dominican tobacco, Cuban piloto filter, Dominican aroma binder, Connecticut Ecuadorean or Brazilian ripe wrappers and Dominican or Indonesian capote.
Potential investors were able to enjoy cigar samples during the dinner presentation.
"We were very pleased with the level of interest we experienced from investors who want to be part of our business to import these premium products for the first time to the US," said Angel Perez, a first-generation American of Dominican descent and co-owner of C&R Imports. Perez and his business partner, co-owner Juan Chirino, also a first- generation American of Dominican descent, are thrilled with the level of enthusiasm they've experienced in introducing their products. "The people who have tried Bermudez rums and Puro Humo cigars absolutely love them," said Chirino. "In fact, with regard to Bermudez rums, in blind taste tests we conducted, eight out of 10 individuals preferred Bermudez to the current leading brand in the US. It's confirmation for us that we are investing in the right product."
C&R Imports has already received all the necessary permits required by the State of North Carolina and Bermudez rums are now available by special order through the NC ABC Commission. C&R has also incorporated in New York, and is in the process of incorporating in California and Florida before expanding into other markets across the US. The establishment of a major network of brokers and distributors is well underway that reaches across the country.
