NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Founded by Nat Sherman in 1930 and family-guided for three generations, Nat Sherman International continues to define the authentic tobacco experience.
The family is proud to announce the latest addition to its portfolio of premium cigars, the Joel Sherman 75th Celebration, which made its official debut at the 2014 International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers Convention in Las Vegas, is now available to consumers. Joel Sherman joined his father Nat Sherman, full-time in the business at the age of 21. Now, an industry icon, Mr. Sherman's leadership as President & CEO, spirit and passion for cigars, has empowered the Nat Sherman brand to be one of the most recognized and sought-after brands in the premium tobacco industry.
"Throughout his long and illustrious career, our father has been recognized by his industry peers as a statesman, troubadour, friend and leader," said William Sherman, Executive Vice President, Nat Sherman.
Nat Sherman the brand began with Nat Sherman, the man.
Joel Sherman got his start in tobacco marketing early, at age 16. Learning all facets of the business "hands-on" from his father (company founder Nat Sherman), Joel became knowledgeable in cigarette and cigar manufacturing, wholesaling and retailing, and ultimately put his own stamp on each of these areas, making Nat Sherman what it is today: the "Tobacconist to the World," specializing in luxury, all-natural tobacco products.
