Yes, we know other sites do so. Obviously they have a different interpretation of the various laws and company philosophy.
Yes! Finally! We now ship cigars to consumers wherever we can get USPS to deliver.
However, we do not send advertisements outside of the USA. In some countries it would be regarded as an illegal solicitation since we are not authorized to export cigars into that country.

These technically aren’t “cigarettes.” They are “filtered craft cigars” and they are completely rethought. We approached this as a design study, setting out to create something truly special. It’s taken us time to master the art. In small batches we select the leaf and let it age, drawing out the rich notes and flavors. Then we cut it, and bind it in a paper void of “fire safe” contaminants. Finally, we package it to preserve taste and freshness. You will not find a better smoke.
Hestia is the Greek goddess of the communal fire. Sister to Zeus, she joins him as one of the original six Olympians. Calm and contemplative, she is chief of the goddesses. Hestia seeks community, demands harmony, makes fire. The hearth is Hestia’s throne. Not only does this hearth anchor each house to the earth beneath it, but pleasing smoke rises to the gods above. Throughout mythology, Hestia is represented by these indispensable communal gathering spaces.
We at Hestia Tobacco are purists. We savor the tastes and aromas of well-aged tobacco. We all know it’s addictive, and enjoy our smokes with the responsibility endowed upon all well-reasoned citizens. We also realize that most Big Tobacco cigarettes taste wretched. We awake every morning to a fresh, aromatic cup of French-pressed coffee. Others awake to energy drinks. Many will likely continue smoking commodified cigarettes. We’re not here to start a fight.
Thankfully, we receive this question quite often. As you probably know, we are a very very small start up, on an incredibly thin budget. To sustain this endeavor, we need many loyal customers. And to find them, we need your help. It’s simple! Tell your friends! Spread the word!
Note: if you happen to think that tobacco consumption is the pinnacle of societal ills, please keep your opinion to yourself. Much work remains in growing this business, and the health effects of tobacco are well-known and well-documented.
