Records dating as far back as the mid 1800’s describe the pre–meeting tradition where cigars were distributed to the Brethren so that they could enjoy a smoke during or after a gathering. Even today, in many lodges, the practice of smoking cigars remains very much alive. This custom is considered a time for Brethren to relax, exchange ideas, and enjoy the simplicity and fellowship that is the very essence of Brotherhood.

This is what Hiram & Solomon Cigars is all about. One of their guiding principles is to bring Masonic Brothers together in the harmony of a good cigar.

Additionally, being one of the most fundamental aspects of Freemason Teachings, a way to incorporate charity into such a meaningful company was a must. In order to have the opportunity to give back to their supporters, Hiram & Solomon Cigars will be donate $5.00 per box sold online to the Shriner’s Hospitals for Children in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Furthermore, when they attend cigar nights and other specific lodge functions, they will happily make an adequate donation back to the hosting lodge.
