Introducing Sautter Humitrunks

Introducing Sautter Humitrunks

There was a time when your steamer trunk was attended to by your valet, but alas, that time has largely gone.

 

These days, if you’re lucky enough to possess such a beautiful piece of travelling furniture you’re likely to have to deal with it yourself. However – if you possess a Sautter steamertrunk, that’s a chore to be positively welcomed.

These refurbished Louis Vittons, Goyards, Moynats, Guccis and Fendis are no ordinary steamertrunks, you see. They are stunning works of cigar art, refitted with Spanish cedar to provide the most sensational and stylistic humidors the heart could desire.

 

Does your wife tell you there’s no way that ugly box (your humidor) is staying in the lounge? Worry no more, dear Sautter customer. She will coo over and stroke lovingly these conversation pieces because they are lined with leather, crocodile, ponyskin, tweed and heaven knows what else the architects have come up with.

Huge ones like wardrobes offer the full Jeeves and Wooster service, with a fully operational drinks bar and glasses in one side and a calibrated, humidified sanctuary for your favourite sticks in the other.

 

Smaller versions – though still capable of holding many hundreds of sticks – are floor chest types.

So how does one keep one’s humitrunk in good order? In short, leave it alone. Cigars don’t want to be disturbed at all hours of the day and night, and who could blame them? So, once you’re satisfied that the hygrometer installed is working correctly – and don’t worry, it will be – the best advice is leave well alone.

 

Having said that, our great leader, Laurence Davis, is a firm believer that cigars need to moved around once in a while – those at the bottom moved to the top, inside to out and all that jazz – to ensure all are treated to a flow of air and a chance of the good life. It’ll help your cigars age, too.

And if you really want to treat those delicious little sticks of sophisticated and decadent delectation, then consider an appointment with our Cigar Butler.

 

He’ll take the pain from your gain, marshalling your little tobacco troops into rank and file and ensuring those unworthy of your regiment are quickly weeded out. He’ll take the time to chat to you to assess your needs and preferences. And he’ll treat your humitrunk like it was his own, visiting it regularly to talk to it in a soothing voice and feed it tasty morsels like H. Upmann Wide Churchills or Partagas Serie E No.2s. Or Por Larranaga Petit Coronas if that’s more to your fancy.

 

You’ll be the envy of all your cigar-toting pals and the talk of the town with a humitrunk ensconsced in pride of place, then. Your temptation will be to play with it, sneak open the lid an inch or two to sniff the contents, caress the careworn patina of the straps.

 

Perhaps we should get the Cigar Butler to install CCTV too…
