With Raahuul Kapoor as Chairman & Co-Founder of The India Cigar Club + Sibling Cigars
The Club along with its sister clubs (India Watch Club and Sibling Cigars) act as an educational & meeting point for cigar lovers, where good friends meet and new opportunities are born – all this lifted higher by excellent cigars and interesting people.
The mission of the India Cigar Club is to unite people who appreciate cigar culture and share the passion and values the Cigar Community is worldwide renowned for.
The Club’s Vision
Our vision is to become the main spot in the Asian countries uniting people who are interested in cigar culture and want to discover new experience of smoking cigars.
We want to promote the cigar culture in the country, sharing the valuable history and introducing new trends from the cigar world.
The Club has started with several events, like organising the Oberoi Gurgaon Cigar Meets, Ladies Cigar Nights, The Claridges Pop-Up Cigar Lounge hosted in 2021
Over the years India has matured as one of the most curious and fastest growing Cigar Markets, with so much potential, The India Cigar Club was formed in 2012, but something was missing, so in 2015 October, The India Cigar Festival, was born for the one sole objective of celebrating in India, the finest cigars from around the world.
There is no other greater opportunity to saviour the perfect cigar than with some brilliant laughs & cerebral exchange.
In 2019 The India Cigar Festival merged with The Independents of Time; welcoming guests from around the country blending the worlds of artisanship, collecting, culture, fine dining, film, fashion, sport all with the sole purpose to cherish, saviour the passions and play of a conscious hedonistic life
