Luxury Lifestyle Expert Gives Away Two Tickets to Nicaragua for a Drew Estate Cigar Safari to Announce Website Launch!

Richard Crawford, a luxury lifestyle expert who provides content for the marketing of luxury brands, is announcing the launch of his company – Richard Crawford Luxury – by giving away two tickets to join him on an all expense-paid Cigar Safari in 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, 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.
“As with many of the finer things in life, the more you understand them the better you can appreciate them,” said Crawford. “I’m excited to launch Richard Crawford Luxury in a big way by offering two lucky people the opportunity to join me in Nicaragua where I will be shooting video on the production of some of the finest cigars in the world. This fully-immerse, hands-on education offers a profound body of knowledge that guarantees a lifelong appreciation of fine premium cigars.”
