For a limited time, adult guests who visit The Florida Aquarium can purchase a collector’s cigar made by J.C Newman Cigar Company.
Named the “SEA-Gar,” the specially designed El Baton cigar is wrapped with The Aquarium’s logo and a Florida Gar, a type of fish featured at The Florida Aquarium.
Aquarium visitors can bring their ticket to J.C. Newman Cigar Co., located at 2701 N. 16th Street, in Tampa, to get one free “SEA-Gar” per ticket, while supplies last. Customers may also purchase SEA-Gars and proceeds will benefit The Aquarium’s conservation research and rescue efforts.
“El Baton is one of our vintage brands made by my great-great-grandfather, J.C. Newman, in 1914 and relaunched in 2008. The widely popular cigar is perfect for the partnership with The Florida Aquarium to help raise awareness about the nonprofit’s critical mission,” said Drew Newman, fourth-generation J.C. Newman Cigar Company owner and cigar maker.
El Baton cigars are grown in the most fertile areas of Nicaragua, providing for a smooth, hearty smoke with a little spice, the company said.
