Oettinger Davidoff AG, Lagardère Travel Retail and Group ADP open walk-in humidor

The new Davidoff Cave à Cigare at Paris CDG offers passengers a chance to experience limited edition cigars and unique liquors

Passengers at Paris CDG airport have a new destination in the Buy Paris Duty Free shop in Terminal 2E: a walk-in humidor that pairs limited-edition cigars with a unique liquor selection, which opened on January 31, 2017. The humidor is a joint operation between Oettinger Davidoff AG, Lagardère Travel Retail and Group ADP.

In addition to a wide selection from the full range of Davidoff products, aficionados will find cigars from the well-established brands Camacho, Griffin’s and Zino. The new walk-in humidor will protect the quality of the cigars, while ensuring that they are stored under ideal humidity conditions for optimal taste experience and enjoyment.

“In addition to bringing the unique experience of Davidoff to the dedicated cigar aficionado, we will also introduce Davidoff to a wider audience,” added Dag Inge Rasmussen, Chairman and CEO of Lagardère Travel Retail.

“The underlying philosophy goes beyond the typical sense of place feeling that we want for all of our stores: the BUY PARIS DUTY FREE concept must also adapt to the passengers’ profile and expectations,” Guy Bodescot, CEO of Société De Distribution Aéroportuaire, explained. “In terminal 2E, Paris Aéroport is expecting us to offer long-haul Sky Alliance passengers a unique environment with the most upscale version of our strategy, to create the ultimate Paris shopping experience. So, we have raised all the standards of the BUY PARIS DUTY FREE concept to their ultimate level: a more personalized service, a great experience for connoisseurs of cigars through the partnership and the development of the Davidoff Cave à Cigare.”
