The Edward Sahakian Cigar Shop, Bulgari Hotel, London Knightsbridge

The Edward and Eddie Sahakian Cigar Shop

Since establishing Davidoff of London on the corner of St James’s Street and Jermyn Street in 1980, Edward Sahakian has acquired a widely-held reputation as one of the most knowledgeable and passionate cigar experts, and one of the best purveyors of fine hand made cigars (both Cuban and non-Cuban) in the world.

His infectious enthusiasm and passion for cigars has passed down to his son, Eddie, who has been involved in the family business since its inception in the 1980s, and now oversees the running of the Edward Sahakian Cigar Shop with the same knowledge, warmth and charm as his father.

The Cigar Collection

The vintage, rare and exquisite cigar collection on offer at the Edward Sahakian Cigar Shop has been sourced exclusively from the ‘jewels’ of Edward Sahakian’s private collection, guaranteeing total provenance as the cigars have always been stored in perfect conditions in the private humidified keep at St. James’s. Stored in individually controlled humidifier cabinets, in perfect conditions that have been fine-tuned by the Sahakian family over the past three decades, the selection includes rarities such as the Cuban Davidoff Dom Perignon; the Partagas No. 4 Reserve and the Cohiba Sublimes Ltd Edition 2004.

The collection also includes well known classics such as the Hoyo De Monterrey Epicure No. 2, the Trinidad Reyes and the Romeo Y Julieta Churchill. Customers looking to purchase an extra special or rare cigar, or accessories such as Elie Bleu humidors; Dupont lighters; or Davidoff cigar cutters, are able to choose from the stock on offer at the St James’s store and, subject to availability, have their purchases delivered swiftly to the Edward Sahakian Cigar Shop.

Private Humidor Lockers

The Cigar Shop also features a temperature and humidity controlled keep where regular customers are able to rent lockers and store and age their cigars. The hotel keep replicates the exact same conditions as found in the keep at the St James’s shop; conditions that helped build the Sahakian reputation for ageing cigars to their full potential.

The Sampling Lounge

Separated from the Cigar Shop by a wall of glass and steel mesh, the Sampling Lounge is plush with padded natural leather walls and relaxed sofas and seating, creating a comfortable and relaxed environment for up to 20 customers of the Cigar Shop to smoke their cigars. A state-of-the-art air replacement system silently maintains a clean air supply and gently draws the smoke from the cigars without producing any noticeable draft or breeze. This coupled with an air purifying system imported from Switzerland creates the perfectly balanced environment for fully enjoying cigars.
