Cigar Humidors have been used for at least the last 150 years to preserve the taste and quality of premium cigars. Terrence Manning, an Irish furniture maker is widely credited with creating the first cigar humidors in 1887 crafted out of exotic woods that kept cigars at the right moisture content level.
Cigar humidors are designed to maintain a specific humidity level and temperature, as well as to allow controlled airflow for your premium cigars. Handmade cigars that are maintained in an environment of between 68% and 72% humidity last longer, taste better and will not dry out and lose flavor.
GothamCigars.com cigar humidors come complete with a Gel Crystal Humidifier Jar, which you simply open up and place inside your cigar humidor to maintain a constant 70% humidity level for up to 90 days before needing to be replaced. In addition, all of our cigar humidors include a brass Hygrometer, which allows you to monitor the specific humidity that your premium cigars are stored at.
At GothamCigars.com, we maintain a large selection of cigar humidors, travel humidors, glass top cigar humidor cabinets, cigar cases and humidor cigar accessories. All premium cigar humidors use Spanish cedar for the construction of the box itself and the drawers for storing your cigars. Spanish cedar is preferred as it has several properties that make it ideal for cigar humidors. Spanish cedar has a high humidity absorption capacity which ensures maintaining a stable climate. It also provides protection from tobacco worms, supports the cigar’s aging process and has a positive effect on the flavor of the cigars. Cigar humidors made of inferior cedar types can actually flavor a cigar with a strong “woody” flavor. All of GothamCigar.com’s cigar humidors are made to exacting standards that ensure that your sticks will always be flavorful and give you the perfect smoke.
We sell our own Gotham Cigar Humidors finished in Cherry wood or wood Burl with Cherry wood inlays that hold up to 200 cigars and are manufactured to our exacting standards.

Finally, you’ll want an ashtray for your cigar ash. But an ordinary ashtray is not built for a premium cigar. You want a cigar ashtray that holds your stogie and doesn’t affect the burn.

We have a selection of cigar ashtrays that is truly unique. Treat yourself, or the cigar smoker in your life to an ashtray that befits their premium cigar hobby.
