Luxury Lifestyle Expert Richard Crawford Launches Cigar Safari Giveaway to Nicaragua


Richard Crawford, a luxury lifestyle expert who provides content for the marketing of luxury brands, just announced the launch of his company Richard Crawford Luxury. As part of this launch, he is also unveiling an incredible giveaway: two tickets to join him on an all expense-paid Cigar Safari to Nicaragua in March 2014.


One winner and their guest will receive an all-inclusive trip to attend the sold out four-day/three-night Cigar Safari at Drew Estate’s Nicaraguan Cigar Factory with Crawford. From March 26-29, 2014, cigar enthusiasts will be given an in-depth, hands-on tour of the facility that highlights the evolution of the cigar from seed to smoke. Guests will explore the eco-tourism of Nicaragua, visit the Estili-based factory, and blend cigars using the finest tobaccos.

Reading about this promotion, I have to admit, I was intrigued. Even if you’re not a cigar smoker or an aficionado, how cool would it be to learn about cigars on-site in Central America where they grow the tobacco. “As with many of the finer things in life, the more you understand them the better you can appreciate them,” said Crawford. Richard will be shooting video on the production of some of the finest cigars in the world and the winners will not only be experience the tour, but his video shoot, which includes a fully-immersive, hands-on education, so you can learn about and better appreciate fine premium cigars.

The Richard Crawford Luxury Cigar Safari giveaway includes flight, meals, transportation in Nicaragua, accommodations, cigars, and cigar education. For information on how to enter, visit their website to enter or here:

Winners will visit Drew Estate Inc., which is a privately held manufacturer and distributor of innovative and traditional premium cigars. In less than a dozen years, Drew Estate’s ACID line of premium cigars has become one of the top five selling premium cigar brands in the nation. The estate is regarded as the pioneer and leader in the infused cigar market.

Below is a sample of what the cigar safari trip itinerary:

Day 1:  Arrive in Managua, where you will grab lunch at a top-notch steakhouse before heading to Granada and catching on a boat ride on Lake Nicaragua. You’ll stay overnight in Grenada that evening where you’ll have plenty of free time at night to hang out and enjoy some of the premium cigars. 

Day 2:  Your second day will take you from Managua to the Drew Estate Factory in Esteli for lunch, where you’ll have a tour of Joya de Nicaragua’s factory and have dinner on-site. Then you’ll have free time in the evening where you can relax, sample cigars, play poker and sip on scotch. Ahhh, divine! 

Day 3You’ll start your day with breakfast at Drew Estate factory, take a tour of Drew Estate’s pre-production facilities, visit a tobacco plantation, have lunch at the Drew Estate factory together with a tour before taking a tour of the Subculture Studios, Drew Estate’s art studio. You’ll then have an opportunity to actually blend your own cigars before having dinner at the Drew Estate factory.

Day 4: After breakfast you’ll head back to Managua International Airport from Esteli and head back to the U.S.
