The pioneering mad scientists that took you on a whirlwind tour through history with steampunk, electricity, and the study of scientific elements are now ready to transport you to the future.
Michael Giannini and the Foundry Collective combine the past, present, and future with Worm Hole, a cigar reinvented as a tunnel-connecting separate points in time.
In 1964, the greatest scientific minds of the day came together to ponder the question: what will the future look like? At the 1964 World’s Fair, they presented hundreds of possibilities.
50 Years later, we find ourselves equally fascinated, equally curious, about what the future has in store. Foundry Worm Hole, with its three uncommon blends, represents our attempt to peer through the wormhole of time to catch a glimpse of – and maybe even help shape – our future.
We begin our voyage through Worm Hole in 1964. What looks “retro” to us now, in fact represents a sophisticated and bold vision of the future. Sample this cigar’s ambitious blend of fine tobaccos, and you’ll see that even 50 years ago, The Foundry was ahead of its time.
Next stop? Now. We pause briefly in the present to sample the 2014’s Foundry cigar. It’s distinct blend of tobaccos give us a sense of how tastes have changed in the past 50 years and where we might be headed as we continue our journey.
Our journey through the Worm Hole has taken us 100 years from where we started. We arrive in a place that’s unfamiliar, a place beyond our wildest imagination. The cigar we encounter in this place is like nothing that has come before it – familiar, and yet somehow totally new, totally unexpected, and totally remarkable.
War of Currents was inspired by Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla’s race to bring electricity to the world. Michael and his team were also driven by inspiration in their quest to shift the paradigms of the premium cigar category.
A great cigar transports us through the glowing moments of our past into the unlimited possibilities of tomorrow. In 2012, we combined the best of our reality and dreams with the revolutionary Foundry, an artisan cigar containing tobaccos that you have never experienced.
The Periodic Table shows nature’s variety at its most basic – and extraordinary. Each element presents a unique combination with its own distinct properties. Our popular Carbon and Uranium cigars are joined this year by three exciting new entries: Cobalt, Lithium, and Dubnium.
Inspired by this rich variety, we created Compounds, Elements, and Musings as a study in contrasts and complexity. By blending and combining different tobaccos handpicked from every corner of the globe, we are able to offer a range of cigars, each completely unique.
